|Summary||0005716: Add commented out mirror in /etc/apt/sources.list|
|Description||In the installation, when the user is prompted to "Configure the package manager", and answers "No" when asked to add a network mirror, sources.list will not contain any mirror. Although some will learn the link between answering that particular question and the lack of mirror, it isn't obvious.|
Later on, when using Kali and when trying to follow tutorials or searching for packages, apt-get won't find anything. It takes a little while to google and figure out what the problem is and it's easy to solve, but it could be easily shortened by adding the mirror, commented out, along with a message explaining why.
It would also be a good idea to improve the message on the installation screen.
