Dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem Error in Kali Linux [ Solution that Might Work]

dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem this is what the message i got when trying to install updates to Kali linux latest version how to fix it.? Before i go for the solution, i know few of you reading this blog had couple of doubts on whether i'm still alive as the number of posts that i wrote has reduced a lot from days to Months to now years. A Big Sorry! As i'm getting busy with the so called life on the other end, i'm unable to focus much on writing posts. then why all of sudden this post about

dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem 

 error message.? simple, the answer is when i read the emails (which of-course, some readers of this site still do) this is the question i got from many of blog readers. I thought of coming back with New Year wishes for 2023 post but decided this needs to be addressed before that! So, this post.

First things first, as usual when we start writing solutions we explain what might be the root cause in other words, what could have likely happened?  Well, it depends! But for me i usually will face this problem whenever i force stop the updates that is getting installed because of power failure or killing terminals/windows executing commands. 

sudo apt update -> System checks for updates  -> Fetches latest updates and shows that it can be installed -> sudo apt full-upgrade -y ->

dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

So, how to fix this issue?

Simple, just run the command as root. it will fix the issue.

But before that, clean your apt's and dpkg's by running this command if required..

Type this on terminal and hit enter: Sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/ 

Type this on terminal post running above command (Optional) : /var/lib/dpkg/updates 

Now, type dpkg --configure -a  on the terminal and hit enter. 

That's it.. You can see your Updates installing/starting with setting up something that was left as it is.. Post this, you can run sudo apt full-upgrade -y command as you used to be! it will work.


What is AWS and How to Make Money ? #Learn AWS Series for free (Part -1)

What is AWS?  Why AWS ?  Is there a way we can make Money using AWS ? What is it to Work on AWS? Why AWS is So successful ? Does AWS requires Coding knowledge? Are you AWS partner ?  Is AWS better than Azure ?  Does your tutorial for AWS free ? Will your guide help me in becoming Aws Certified Professional, as i'm unable to afford it? tons of questions like this! in this past week! from our blog readers! 

Shall we start AWS tutorials as part of our blog (as usual for free..) #Learn AWS?

 Hi family, Welcome back.! Thanks for the Continuous Support, even though i started writing contents with a brief gap in between.! Surprised to see more and more questions flowing to the inbox when i started writing back just couple of posts in this week, asking whether i'm back, why there were so much gap in between and whether there will be posts as usual😅.. I was slightly busy, and that was a result of long gap. I Will try to blog as usual, whenever i have time but will make sure to publish one post everyday or atleast once in 2days. 

I recently got a question from our blog reader asking whether AWS, Azure, Google cloud certifications are really required to Survive in Cloud industry or for someone choosing cloud as career. Though i replied with an honest opinion that they might be the future and those certifications (based on level) will really add up on skills for high paying jobs, i got a next question, whether is there anylink which we can learn aws for free or download aws course materials for free because the cost of aws, azure certification are really high for a normal person. And as i always suggest, the best way of learning is by practising if we start using services like S3, EC2, lambda, etc and if we left the EC2 service without terminating, then if u are cloud person you know the consequence you need to sell your house for paying the bills😂😂 just kidding! but yup, that's the slight truth too..!

So, i shared some of the links, where we can learn Aws courses for free as part of our motto of knowledge should be free.. But, thought of starting a knowledge series to learn about AWS so that others also can start learning stuff's and land into some of the high paying jobs..

I Will try to start with as much as basic i can, but want to say one thing very clearly, that if i feel i can give a link where you can learn much better for that service for example official AWS website has more clear explanation for Cloudwatch, Cloudfront, IAM, EC2 than other sites which are teaching about those Services, then i will simply link it, so that we can save your time as well as mine. However, if u can't understand or found difficulty on that part, then feel free to let me know on comments or through emails as usual, happy to help..! I do understand, there are multiple Video tutorials/courses on udemy, udacity and even in youtube that teaches AWS, but unfortunately most of them are paid.. But, if i come across any free best courses then i will share that on our site, do suggest on comments or on emails if you come across one which is of high quality..! As usual, a friendly disclaimer i'm not certified AWS professional of Amazon to teach AWS, though have much knowledge about that, so feel free to verify the information you learn (which might be updated) with various sources.!

I also got few emails on when the combined latest tech news of the day collected from various sources post will be back.! Currently, im running up into multiple things, so, i will try to start that too as much as possible.!

We will start this series this week, So stay tuned by following on any our sites social media links to get update immediately.. Feel free to comment if you have any doubts on this journey.

Will your Metadata Shared when you share Picture on WhatsApp ? (or) Does WhatsApp Send photo Metadata ?

Alright, to keep things short and not to take too much of your time, i will say it in short and then let's proceed to the main post..

What is Metasploit?

Hmm, this is one of the pentesting tool that is available for Pentesters and People like you to learn and break things.! If i have to say more specific a tool used to develop/use exploits / Vulnerabilities and much more.. When i meant Much more, it doesn't mean i  doesn't know much stuff its just to say, I wont' say much things about this tool as usual, because we learn much when we start researching😅, and that's much needed skill when you are using Operating system like this.. 

However, to help you Research about this, i will share the link to the book where you can read all about this Metasploit for free [Click to View Link].. 

What is the difference between Metasploit and Metasploitable ?

Don't Confuse Metasploit with Metasploitable which has many versions like Metasploitable 1, Metasploitable 2 etc which you can download for free from Official Sources itself... Again, to Say in Short, the difference between Metaspoit and Metasploitable is simple.. If you want to learn using the tool, you need to practice right? so, the developers of the tool along with others developed this Metasploitable, which is nothing but a Vulnerable machine.. (For normal readers: A machine which Won't have bugs fixed and can be easily compromised).

Alright, hope you got enough information about the tool, if not feel free to refer the above link i tagged.

OKay, here comes the need for writing this post..

I had actually received an question from our blog reader, stating they find very difficult to update Metasploit, not sure why..So,thought of explaining in post, so that Others can also refer when required..

 How to Update Metasploit in Kali Linux Latest Version [Guide]

There are Multiple ways, to Update Metasploit on Kali Linux, but onething i wanna share is the previous way of running msfupdate on terminal will no longer work so you can't update metasploit using that way..!

Infact, running msfupdate will provide following result on terminal..

msfupdate is no longer supported when Metasploit is part of the operating system. Please use 'apt update; apt install metasploit-framework'

So, i guess you now got the answer, we need to use the apt version for better result even though we have various other advanced ways..

You can also download metasploit from github too from this link  : https://github.com/rapid7/metasploit-framework and install as usual.. To update,

Fire up your terminal and copy paste or try the following the command.

 sudo apt-get --only-upgrade install metasploit-framework 

The above command itself will download and install metasploit on your PC. But sometimes, due to the server/mirror issues, you will get message like Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing? So, on such cases, try retrying and if problem still persists update using the normal Kali update commands.

That's it.!

See you on next post.,

Happy Learning..
