Kali Rolling marks the end of Kali Linux 2.0 and the beginning of a new release regime, and today on K4linux we will show you how to upgrade to the new version of Kali Linux.

How rolling releases work?

A rolling-release Linux is one that’s constantly being updated. To some of you, that will sound a lot like DevOps’ idea of continuous deployment.
You’d be right in thinking so. In both cases, the idea is that users
and developers are best served by giving them the latest updates and
patches as they’re created.

Rather than Kali basing itself off standard Debian releases (such as
Debian 7, 8, 9) and going through the cyclic phases of “new, mainstream,
outdated”, the Kali rolling release feeds continuously from Debian testing, ensuring a constant flow of the latest package versions.

Transitioning From Kali 2.0 to Kali Rolling

Migrating from Kali sana (2.0) to Kali rolling is simple. As root, you can run the following commands and be on your way:
cat << EOF > /etc/apt/sources.list
deb kali-rolling main non-free contrib

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

Please note that the Kali sana repositories will no longer be updated and will be EOL’d on the 15th of April 2016.
