I have been looking everywhere for this answer, I am having the exact same issue. I can get airmon-ng start wlan0. I end up with the wlan0mon. Then when I airodump-ng wlan0mon it gives me the illegal instruction and freezes the terminal. I had it working this morning but during the day I did do an apt-get update, apt-get upgrade and since then it has been doing the above. Was really hoping you had someone who had posted an answer, sorry for not having one for you. In the same boat with you though.

yes when you do the upgrade aircrack-ng updated to a newer version
Aircrack-ng 1.2 rc4 that not compatible with kali linux rolling edition
i think its a bug take a look at this

do you know how to restore the previous version

I am a noob. Trying to figure out how to uninstall and reinstall now. I know you can get older versions of Aircrack-ng at there main page. Just hit the Aircrack-ng button up in your toolbar and it will take you there. Then there is a "Sources" button by downloads that has older versions.

I already downloaded an older version but i have a problem with install it

Wish I could help. If anyone out there could be so kind as to give some direction it would be much appreciated. I need to know how to uninstall and reinstall the Aircrack-ng suite software. Thanks in advance. Good Luck Red John, if you figure it out plz let me know how you got it. I will do the same.

Hey Red John I did another apt-get update apt-get upgrade this morning and it looks like they fixed the bugs in airodump-ng.

To return to an earlier version of Air crack, just edit the file with any text editor such as sudo, in /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following line:

deb wheezy-backports main contrib non-free
Put # the line that there is the same repository with the current version for example:
# Deb jessie-backports main contrib non-free

, Make an upgrade and then you can install via terminal or via synaptic. Once installed you can return the /etc/apt/sources.list changes to the current version, and automatically update to avoid a new version, you can lock the installed version with the following commands to lock the package:

with APT-GET -> apt-mark hold package_name
with APTITUDE -> aptitude hold package_name
To unlock the package:
with APT-GET -> apt-mark unhold package_name
with APTITUDE -> aptitude unhold package_name
In this way the package is locked and can only be updated manually after unlocked.
Good luck....
