I have downloaded the image from the offensive security website and I got kali running but I can't seem to find a way to install the full kali package(kali-linux-full).

The packages that come bundled are limited so I was looking to install the full kali package but when I try to do

apt-get install kali-linux-full

it says Unable to locate package kali-linux-full

I looked at my sources.list and I see that I have kali-rolling and in my mind I should be able to find that package. Is there a way to get a full kali linux installation on a PI 4?

From the Kali Linux website:


When you download a Kali Linux ISO, you are essentially downloading an installation that has the kali-linux-full metapackage installed. This package includes all of the tools you are familiar with in Kali.


Run the following command:

apt-get update && apt-cache search kali-linux

You should see the list of metapackages you can install.

enter image description here

If kali-linux-everything is listed, try running:

apt install kali-linux-everything
