Steps To Reproduce1. Configure your kali box to use "http://http.kali.org/kali/" mirror only.
2. Run apt-get update
3. Run apt-get dist-upgrade, apt-get install, or another command that forces packages to be downloaded from the mirror
Additional Informationhttps://gist.github.com/ss23/70dbd5913a582472770ac973699c8401 has more complete output from my system.

I seem to recall hitting this with kali.mirror.garr.it too, though I haven't tested.

Have you run an "apt-get update" first ?

Yes. You can verify by looking at the gist I attached to the original ticket. It may also include other information you'll want to know (like how my sources.list is set, or which mirrors are giving errors vs which aren't).

I confirm the problem... the mirror redirects to two different IPs:
$ host kali.mirror.garr.it
kali.mirror.garr.it is an alias for ba.mirror.garr.it.
ba.mirror.garr.it has address 90.147.160.69
ba.mirror.garr.it has address 90.147.164.69

And at least one IP points to a (very) old version of the Kali repository.

http://90.147.160.69/mirrors/kali/project/trace/repo.kali.org => up to date
http://90.147.164.69/mirrors/kali/project/trace/repo.kali.org => outdated

I have disabled the mirror for now. And I'll ping the mirror admins.

Looks like both mirrors are in sync again. I re-enabled the mirror.
