Summary0005201: after dist-upgrade'ing to 2019.1 "John" is broken
DescriptionHello,

First time submitting so apologies if I have the wrong category.

Same thing happened on both a machine at my home as well as a machine at work. Both were running a 2018 version of Kali (I think both were .4 but not certain, at least one was, the other might have been .2 or .3) - after running a dist-upgrade john gives the following error:

"fopen: $JOHN/rules/best64.rule: No such file or directory"

Same error will happen no matter how you invoke john, e.g.:

root@kalberto:~# john --list=formats
fopen: $JOHN/rules/best64.rule: No such file or directory

This happened on my home system first, so I then verified it on another system at work. I verified john worked, then ran the apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade and then john starting throwing this error, same as with my home system.
Steps To Reproduceapt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

root@kalberto:~# john --list=formats
fopen: $JOHN/rules/best64.rule: No such file or directory

I've been experiencing the following output for 7+ days. *(Screenshot attached showing (Kali 'Live' usb (root)))

root@kali:~# john
execv: /usr/lib/john/: Permission denied
Sorry, AVX2 is required for this build
root@kali:~#

Thanks for your time.
