I have been trying to install many packages, Google Chrome and Monodevelop. But I run into the same problem everytime:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package libappindicator1 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'libappindicator1' has no installation candidate

This happens with all packages. I have preformed the command sudo apt-get -f install, apt-get update and apt-get update && apt-cache search kali-linux successfully but it still does not work. (I am running Kali amd64). There is probably a really easy solution and I am just bad at googling stuff....
Sources.list:

@linux:~/Downloads$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
# 

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2016.1 _Kali-rolling_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20160120-18:14]/ kali-rolling contrib main non-free

#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2016.1 _Kali-rolling_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20160120-18:14]/ kali-rolling contrib main non-free
  • What does the /etc/apt/sources.list file contain? – cherdt Mar 9 '17 at 21:39

Edit your sources.list by adding the following line:

deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free

Run:

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade

Reboot ; open the terminal and run the following commands :

apt-get install libappindicator1
wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
apt-get -f install 

Install monodevelop :

apt-get install  monodevelop
