    Why are no repositories configured? Did you remove or edit /etc/apt/sources.list, or files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d? zipalign is available from the Kali repositories, you should install it from there. Jun 2, 2020 at 11:24
  • @StephenKitt No i didn't edited anything in the sources.list, but i can't install it directly, it says unable to find the package. Can you show or tell me the contents of the sources.list Jun 3, 2020 at 12:12

The fact that all your package lines (from apt list) end with “[installed,local]” means that you don’t have any configured repositories, so the first thing to do is to fix that, using the appropriate Kali repository:

echo deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib > /etc/apt/sources.list

(Note that this will replace all your /etc/apt/sources.list.)

Then, update your repositories:

apt update

You’ll probably need to remove zipalign at this point, temporarily:

dpkg -r zipalign

But you’ll then be able to install the current version from the repository:

apt install zipalign
