|0008057: rkhunter install problem
I tried to install rkhunter but I think the package is corrupt and won't install.
|Steps To Reproduce
sudo 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
sudo apt-get remove --purge rkhunter
I think the reason for the error in installing/upgrading kali-linux-everything is due to the presence of such problematic tools.
I also followed the steps below, but nothing changed.
sudo apt -y install rkhunter
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo ls -l /var/lib/dpkg/info | grep -i rkhunter
sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/rkhunter /tmp
sudo apt update
sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/rkhunter
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;
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.
This report has been filed against an old version of Kali. We will be closing this ticket due to inactivity.
Please could you see if you are able to replicate this issue with the latest version of Kali Linux (https://www.kali.org/get-kali/)?
If you are still facing the same problem, feel free to re-open the ticket. If you choose to do this, could you provide more information to the issue you are facing, and also give information about your setup?
