Hey Brother!

some months back, I encountered with same problem..

you can solve this by :

1. Go to kali-tweaks -> Network repo (something like that) -> select Cloudflare CDN then HTTPS from below

save that, Now try update and upgrade , it will be solved now

Its not a problem while using Kali, like "sudo apt update" or whatever.
The problem is that I cannot download the Kali ISO from the official site (very slow download that fails).
Hope this helps?

Please try to download using a bittorrent client. There's a "torrent" link for most Kali images (except the weekly image). Click this link, and open the .torrent file with a bittorrent client..

Otherwise, try downloading the image from the command-line, using `wget IMAGE_URL` (replace IMAGE_URL by the image URL) and copy/paste the output here, so that we can see what server you download from.
