Summary0006582: error on documentation for building kali with debootstrap
DescriptionI used the instructions here for building kali with debootstrap:

https://www.kali.org/tutorials/build-kali-with-live-build-on-debian-based-systems/

To build this shell script with the contents of the doc. The contents of my shell script are identical to the contents of the doc.

#!/bin/bash
sudo apt update
sudo apt -y upgrade

wget https://http.kali.org/pool/main/k/kali-archive-keyring/kali-archive-keyring_2018.1_all.deb
wget https://archive.kali.org/kali/pool/main/l/live-build/live-build_20180618kali1_all.deb
sudo apt -y install git live-build cdebootstrap debootstrap curl
sudo dpkg -i kali-archive-keyring_2018.1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i live-build_20180618kali1_all.deb
cd /usr/share/debootstrap/scripts/
(echo "default_mirror http://http.kali.org/kali"; sed -e "s/debian-archive-keyring.gpg/kali-archive-keyring.gpg/g" sid) > kali
sudo ln -s kali kali-rolling

cd ~
git clone git://gitlab.com/kalilinux/build-scripts/live-build-config.git

cd live-build-config/
# Check we have a good debootstrap
ver_debootstrap=$(dpkg-query -f '${Version}' -W debootstrap)
if dpkg --compare-versions "$ver_debootstrap" lt "1.0.97"; then
  if ! echo "$ver_debootstrap" | grep -q kali; then
    echo "ERROR: You need debootstrap >= 1.0.97 (or a Kali patched debootstrap). Your current version: $ver_debootstrap" >&2
    # exit 1
  fi
fi
Steps To Reproduce1) Use the contents of the doc to make a shell script like i did.
2) run it to build kali with debootstrap.

the output is as follows:

the crux of the problem is the two wget commands in the docs both produce 404's

Additional InformationI would be willing to work on fixing the scripting, I actually have been doing it in my free time with little success, I have a lot going on. If someone can fix this fast please do, I think good documentation is important for open source projects so I have opened this bug to bring it to the community attention that the documentation is in need of updating. Thank you.

I know this page does not present these commands as a shell script, but I had wanted to put them together like a shell script, and they did not work. I have worked out why and have put the commands together as the following shell script. It successfully builds a kali iso. Is it possible for someone to give me access to this URL to rewrite the documentation to include these corrections? If this is not possible can someone else update it? Thanks.

This line fails:

(echo "default_mirror http://http.kali.org/kali"; sed -e "s/debian-archive-keyring.gpg/kali-archive-keyring.gpg/g" sid) > kali

it does not create the output file kali

Please ignore the previous note, user error. I am running this script with the output to a file now to see if it errors out, it would not succeed in the ln -s command because the file already existed, I deleted the files located in /usr/share/debootstrap/scripts/ and am running again to make sure there is no problem. Since I am logging the output II will see for sure.
