Summary0006596: Bettercap Web UI Results in 404

The Bettercap package provided in the Kali repo always results in a "404 page not found" error when attempting to use the Web UI. The issue is also discussed here:

Steps To Reproduce

1) Run the following:

sudo apt install bettercap
sudo bettercap -eval "caplets.update; ui.update; q"
sudo bettercap -caplet http-ui

2) Observe 404 Response

Additional Information

I was able to get this to work by running the following to install from source:

sudo apt-get install golang
export GOPATH=$HOME/go
source ~/.bashrc
sudo apt-get install libpcap-dev build-essential libusb-1.0-0-dev libnetfilter-queue-dev
go get
cd $GOPATH/src/
make build
sudo make install
sudo bettercap -eval "caplets.update; ui.update; q"
sudo bettercap -caplet http-ui

the issue occurs because the package bettercap-ui is not installed by bettercap or by bettercap-caplets.
And the command sudo bettercap -eval "caplets.update; ui.update; q" does nothing in Kali because we disabled the install / update.
The installation or update must be done with apt.

I added bettercap-ui as a dependency of bettercap-caplets package: issue is fixed in version 0+git20200413-0kali2 of bettercap-caplets.

I will try to update bettecap to display a message when you use the update command outside the interactive bettercap shell.
