Been using BackBox for awhile now betwwn both Kali and BackBox linux.

However I know for a fact my system is not up to date.

I am running the latest BackBox version i.e BackBox Linux 3.05.

Now when I use the "update" feature from the menu to ensure all my tools are update inclduing metasploit I get the following result:
Code: [Select]

[sudo] password for kusanagi:

[i] Running apt-get update...


[!] Generic error. Quitting...


I have no clue what this is or why it is happening as it gives no info regarding the error.

So me being me decided why not msfupdate via terminal?

Code: [Select]
kusanagi@nekobox:~$ sudo msfupdate
sudo: msfupdate: command not found
kusanagi@nekobox:~$

Well poop.

Hi,

Just first run manual update from terminal, after that you can use update tool. Everything working after this.

sudo -i
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade

Reboot your system, and you can use Update tool.

Cheers !

Well after reinstalling BB once again. I upgraded the kernel to 3.8.0-25 works perfect. But now that I run backbox-update from the terminal or from the shortcut I get this message.

Maybe :)

Try manual upgrade then use tool.

sudo -i
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install backbox-desktop --reinstall --install-recommends


Keep me posted !
