I was recently launching an instance of Kali Linux (1.0.6 | 64-bit Amazon Machine Image (AMI) | Updated: 10/10/14) in Amazon Web Services and as the image only provides the Kali package repository (as per the description”bare-bones”) I was looking to install the complete system (apt-get install kali-linux-full) from the available packages.
However, on invoking the installation of the package from the repository I was presented with several response codes stating the repository list(s) could not be found and GPG invalid signatures.
In order to resolve the issue I replaced my list of current repositories (creating a backup first!) and included the below repository items into a new /etc/apt/sources.list file, installed all the necessary keyrings and updated the repository list.
cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.backup echo "deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib" >> /etc/apt/sources.list echo "deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list apt-get install kali-archive-keyring apt-get update apt-get install kali-linux-full
Now I was able to install the complete system for Kali Linux, so sit back and have a coffee this process may take a while!
