This article shows you how to update the old version of Kali Linux 2022.1 installed on a PC to version 2022.2.

Kali Linux is a distribution used for penetration testing and system security auditing. Using many free tools in Kali, you can test your network’s security vulnerabilities and use it as a user system.

If you have one of the old versions of the Kali system installed on your physical computer, you can quickly install the newly released version via the terminal.

You can follow this video tutorial or the steps below to upgrade to Kali Linux 2022.2 latest version.

Step 1: Back up your projects, files, and documents on your Kali computer.

Step 2: You must prepare your system’s repository for the update. So open the terminal and run the echo “deb kali-rolling main non-free contrib” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list command.
