Summary0006587: Kali-Themes Package Broken on RPi

When doing an apt-get upgrade the kali linux themes package tries to mount a symbolic link on /boot/grub/themes/kali/background.png

However the boot partition on the RPi is FAT32 and doesn't support symlinks

I've logged this as high as this bug also prevents you from running a sudo apt-get install kali-linux-large etc. it fails because the themes package is broken.

Steps To Reproduce

sudo apt-get upgrade on a fresh install of 2020.2b

Additional Information


Sudo apt-get remove kali-themes-common -f
sudo apt clean (as a precation)
Sudo apt-get install kali-themes-common -f
sudo dpkg --configure -a (as a check - no errors)
sudo apt-get upgrade (as a check - no errors)
