I am quite new to this stuff!


I have been following ippsec along with some of his easy/medium ctf tutorials over the last week or so, but I keep butting heads with the same issue.

When I go to ‘apt-get install ______’ some cool package he is using I am met with:

Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
“E: Unable to locate package ___” (seclists, gobuster, leafpad, etc.)

My sources.list file in /etc/apt/sources.list looks like:
deb Index of /kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
deb OCF Mirrors kali-rolling main non-free contrib

From what I have gathered on many failed attempts at troubleshooting, their first step is to check if these are in my sources.list and then run:
apt-get update (which I have done),
followed by apt-get upgrade, clean…

None of these solutions have worked for me.

I am using Virtualbox 2.6 Kali VM. What am I doing wrong here? I figured this would be the best place to get a real answer.
