Forum Thread: Kali 4.3.0 amd64 - Missing Headers?

I had to do a clean install of the Kali (Kali 2016.1) on my HDD, since I messed up quite a few things before.
Setting up Repositories in the sources file.
I've followed the as per the Repositories mentioned in the online manual.

Did apt-get update (DONE).
Did apt-get upgrade (963 mb) (DONE)..
Now, when I try to download the headers via
-apt-get install -y linux-headers-$(uname -r)

I receive
Couldn't find any package by glob 'linux-headers-4.3.0-kali-amd64'

NOTE : Earlier (before reinstallation) the headers used to download without any problem.

My question is :Have they completely removed the linux-headers
-4.3.0 Kali1 amd64 from the Repositories?

"I have this issues before, and I fix it. I open All Settings, and choose Details. Click on for updates, and your system will check updates. After it, if the system tell to install the update just do it and reboot." from stackexchange

The method above works for me

Mark Wong is an idiot. I'm not sure if you're looking to install nvidia drivers, but after lots of trial and error:

apt-get install nvidia-driver

worked perfectly for installing the headers, driver, and dependencies correctly (for a 980ti anyway.) It's usually never that easy, but I'll take it.

I doubt OP is still around, but I've had this problem at least twice. The Kali repositories don't have those headers anymore, and I can usually only find one version at a time. To check the current ones, which will also show you what kernel you need, just run:

apt-cache search linux-headers-
To update the kernel, just run:
apt-get dist-upgrade
And to install the new headers:
apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Hope I could help anyone interested :)
