I am connecting to Kali linux located on remote server using Putty with a proxy server in between. I am trying to do apt-get install update and getting the following error.

Reading package lists... Done
E: The repository 'https://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

  • /etc/apt/sources.list <-- can you share the contents of this file? – DarkMatter Nov 8 at 22:51
  • Are you trying to install a packaged named update? That is what the apt-get command shown does. sudo apt-get update would fetch new repository indicies. sudo apt-get upgrade would install pending package updates. – trognanders Nov 9 at 0:15
  • This is not a security question but a Linux question. – schroeder Nov 9 at 10:00
  • @DarkMatter This is what my sources.list looks like deb http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib # deb-src http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib – Saivenkat Nov 9 at 15:16
