In this article, we are gonna learn how to update and upgrade Kali Linux to the latest version. If you are using the default installation of Kali, you should be checking for new updates from time to time. If you need a new version of a tool or security update, that may speed up your system.
Kali is a rolling release, in a year Kali releases its four versions. Which comes with new features and tools.
To update Kali Linux, first, we have to check our repository file and file location is /etc/apt/sources.list. The following code should be in the file.
deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
Update Kali Linux
Now we have to update our Kali Linux packages index list. Open your favorite terminal and enter the following command:
techdhee@kali:~|⇒ sudo apt update
If you want to display all packages which are scheduled for an update.
techdhee@kali:~|⇒ sudo apt list --upgradable
Now we can upgrade individual packages using sudo apt install PCKAGE_NAME or we can upgrade the whole system using
techdhee@kali:~|⇒ sudo apt full-upgrade -y
All done. Your Kali Linux system is now fully upgraded.
Uninstall No Longer Required Packages
Now after the system upgrades some of the packages may no longer be used, hence any longer required. To remove all no longer required Kali Linux packages run the command
techdhee@kali:~|⇒ sudo apt autoremove
