This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You have an entry in your repositories which references repo.kali.org, which is no longer usable (see Getting Error on updating Kali Linux 403 Forbidden [IP: 80]). You need to find that entry and remove it; it could be in /etc/apt/sources.list or in a file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d.
