Summary0008057: rkhunter install problem
DescriptionI tried to install rkhunter but I think the package is corrupt and won't install.
Steps To Reproducesudo apt -y install rkhunter => E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

sudo dpkg --configure -a => Errors encountered during processing: rkhunter

sudo apt-get install -f => Errors encountered during processing: rkhunter
                                            grep: /etc/default/rkhunter: No such file or directory
                                            E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

sudo apt-get remove --purge rkhunter
Additional InformationI think the reason for the error in installing/upgrading kali-linux-everything is due to the presence of such problematic tools.

sudo ls -l /var/lib/dpkg/info | grep -i rkhunter

sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/rkhunter /tmp

Can you give more information about your kali installation or how you are running it? I can’t reproduce the issue at all here on multiple systems.

I have been using kali as the only operating system on the computer for many years. I recently performed a clean install with the installer, the version of which is 2.9 G installed on my system, and my source repositories are;
kali-bleeding-edge. (as on the source page

Note: I have stated my opinion on the problems experienced in the kali-everything installation, which I have presented as additional information above, only as a personal opinion that can help you solve the error. Because after performing a clean installation, I installed a lot of tools and made my customizations without any problems.
