Summary0007725: [Kali Live Latest] - raspi-firmware is installed but I'm not on Raspberry Pi
DescriptionHi !
I installed Kali LIve on a usb stick, and I apt-updated/upgraded all the packages. At the end, there was an error showing that :

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Is this a normal behavior of Kali to have Raspi's firmware updater pre-installed ? Kali Live should not interact with the system, or upgrading the Pi's firmware is interacting with the system. I think this shouldn't be there, is this a mistake ?
Steps To ReproduceInstall Kali Live 2022.2 on a USB stick, then upgrade all the packages.

What machine are you running this on?

You are correct that raspi-firmware should only be used on a raspberrypi, but we don't use it in kali at all, it's a package from Debian that is in the repositories. I don't see it in the meta packages so I'm not sure why it is installed there. Which live usb are you using?

It's probably erroring out because it can't copy the firmware into /boot/firmware - a workaround would be to create that directory temporarily.
