Kali linux failed after upgrade
Ok here is the fix that worked for me:
My box was running live when I did this.
First download deb to another host:
Then SCP that up to the box that is having issues.
Once the file is up on the box. Run this:
sudo dpkg -i /tmp/libidn2-0_2.0.5-1_amd64.deb
This was a downgrade for me and then I was able to update (apt-get) without issue.
At this point I do not know of any issues this will cause. Use at your own risk.
I succeeded to fix it:
- From another computer I downloaded the libidn2.so.0 deb file and moved it to USB.
- In recovery-mode, I succeeded to offline replace it with my file. Now wget, curl and the other networking command work!
- I ran update and upgrade successfully and installed gnome. (after the upgrade, I had to re-install again libidn2.so.0).
- Reboot and login page pops up (although it took longer than I used to).
Hope it helps!
