How to Upgrade Kali Linux to Latest Version (1.1.*)

Hello there, in this post I am going to write the upgrade procedures for Kali Linux to the latest version as I did in my lab environment.

I would like to inform you that these steps may change according to your environment. In my case, I upgraded from 1.0.7 x64 version to 1.1.0 x64.

Let us start;

  • Backup the current apt source list file as follow.
  • Open the current apt source list file with an editor (nano, pico, vi, vim etc.) (I use vim editor) as follow.
  • Delete all lines in the source list, in other words, empty file content. Then add the following lines into the file (/etc/apt/sources.list) as shown.
  • kali-linux-sources-lst

    Edit and Save sources.lst File

  • Update the system and install kali-archive-keyring package by using apt-get or aptitude as follow.

  • Upgrade the system by using apt-get or aptitude as follow. It will take some time to fully upgrade the system.

  • After fully upgraded has been done successfully, you can check the new Kali Linux version as follow.


Finally, you are done.

Thanks for reading this post.

Have a great day.
