On Kali Linux. When I'm running
apt -get install openssh-server openssh-client for installating SSH server, I am getting 404 only. What should I do?
Any idea anybody?

    @metamourge when I used to install SSH server earlier,this used to work. But it doesn't work on another system

    Run apt install openssh-server openssh-client instead

    +1 for package list update. If you don’t refresh the version changes and then you won’t be able to fetch it any more

    yea apt just updated a few days ago. ironically about the same time i finally figured out how to install the boot loader for slax onto my virtual box’s “hard drive” so that i didn’t have to use the iso. Once it booted up, i killed it and went to bed. Woke up the next mornin and spent two days trying to figure out how that move suddenly caused me to not be able to download. The way the error was worded had me thinking it couldn’t find a directory because sometimes search and download would “work” but all u ended up with was an icon to click. other times apt wouldn’t even return search results

    isn’t it upgrade tho? at least for apt not apt-get. seems like i ran “apt update” the other day and it didn’t help, i had to run upgrade. or it may have been vice versa, i don’t remember for sure right now

    Use windows. You're not ready for kali

    @netikras he could try slax maybe? The only real problem I've ran into with it revolved around trying to get it to automatically boot up with my saved modules. The other day was just a combination bad timing and me assuming I had crashed another box attempting to do that.

    Of course I could've always just enabled write privileges for the virtual box it was running on, I just figured it best not to give the thing access to my mac until I had a little better handle on what security measure needed to be taken while running linux.

    @M1sf3t
    update = refresh package list
    upgrade = upgrade outdated packages
    full-upgrade (recent apt versions) / dist-upgrade = More upgrades (with some details changed), it used to finalize upgrades to new distribution versions.

    @sbiewald ok so most likely update didn't work and upgrade did. I ran one looking at the help file and then the other after asking someone for some advice. They went to download a copy and noticed there was a new version available. Something else to be noted about slax, I've been messing with it since a little before christmas and I think there have been like 3 maybe 4 updates to the distro. So far this was the only one that broke the package manager though, the version I had downloaded two weeks before I only discovered because I had visited the website to look over the documentation again.

    @aarfa try upgrade???

    Then again you might want to wait for some advice from someone that knows what they're doing 😅
