  1. It worked perfectly, thank you very much!

  2. I am using kali linux amd64 v4.0.0 this solution is not working anymore please help me.

  3. it worked like a magic. many forums cant give a perfect answer for this. you did! thank you :)

    stupid morons

  5. Didn't work for me.
    I had to edit the /user/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptsources/district.py

    if self.source template is None:
    raise NoDistroTemplateExeption(
    "Error: could not find distribution template for %S/%S"

    Process: gksudo gedit /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptsources/distro.py
    Change "error" to "pass", no quotes.

    Now I am fairly new to kali and python scripts in general. I hope this won't pose a future problem, but everything look all good on my side. Though some confirmation that what I'm doing will be of no consequence would be nice.


  6. It worked perfectly for me too, thanks!!!
