Again, to Say in Short, the difference between Metaspoit and Metasploitable is simple..

 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..
