This could be a temporary issue with the mirror. Can you try hardcoding your sources.list at and try again?

Please attach the output of "apt-config dump". I wonder if it's not an issue with the APT configuration of the image that you used to start with.

Can you let us know how you installed Kali on your Raspberry Pi 3? What image did you use?

Subsidiary question: do you have IPv6 connectivity or not? since is IPv6-enabled, it might be relevant.

We just tried on a raspberry pi with a kali image and it seems to work if we put the japanese mirror in /etc/apt/sources.list:
cat >/etc/apt/sources.list <<EOF
deb kali-rolling main non-free contrib

So I'm really wondering if it's not just some temporary glitch that you encountered....

1. I will send the apt-config dump output later
2. I did not bother configuring or checking IPv6. I always stick with IPv4.
3. Two weeks ago before I encounter the problem I had a successful fresh install and upgraded of kali-linux-full on my RasPi3. I had to do the same with my other RasPi3 but it fails.
4. It came accross me that maybe since I am in Singapore things like such are being monitored and suppressed. I am not really sure.

This has been fixed on the DNS level.
