Terribly sorry for the capitals. Mea culpa :)

The really strange thing is that an updated, fully functional version of Kali that i have in my VirualBox running as Virtual Machine, came up with the same error!


pleontios (reporter)

Could it be the case that there is a problem at the mirror site?


pleontios (reporter)

SOLVED (on my side). I replaced the default redirection to UOC with another mirror site and it worked like a charm!
STILL, there is probably a problem either to the redirection link or the mirror site of UOC.

The ftp.cc.uoc.gr website has a message:
> We're having hardware issues... It will take a while to be fully back.

However, I enabled that mirror in a kali-rolling chroot today and it seems to work. Can you confirm me that the problem is gone on your side even if you switch back to http.kali.org in /etc/apt/sources.list ?

Thank you.


pleontios (reporter)

YES! Problem solved.
Thank you.
