How to do it...

In order to keep Kali up-to-date, the process is very simple. To run a quick check for updates, run the following commands.

  1. Open up a Command Prompt.
  2. Enter the following command: apt-get update
  1. Press Enter
  2. After the command completes, enter the following command: apt-get dist-upgrade
  3. Press Enter

This process will take a few minutes (or longer) depending on your internet connection and how many updates need to be downloaded. If you keep your system up-to-date and check regularly, you can expect the process not to take as long as it does the first time you undertake it.
