Kali Linux: Installation Problem

Hi to everyone! I've got problems when I get to the "Configure the package manager" phase where it is asking about the network mirror. I always get the "Bad archive mirror" error. I am installing from a live usb. I know I can continue without a network mirror. But my kali will have only a very minimal base system. I don't know what to add to kali (through a terminal) after completing the installation. What are the things I should add to kali or update or should do after completing the installation?

You can continue without network mirror...
Then in the sources.list... remove # from 2, 3, 5 and 6 lines...
Then run this

' apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y && apt-get upgrade --fix-missing -y && apt-get dist-upgrade -y && apt-get dist-upgrade --fix-missing -y'

Without ' '

Wow! Thanks for the quick response. :)

Anyway, do you know how to install python on kali?

Python is installed by default.

i got same problem where i can found source list i am new in linux

The sources file can be easily changed using the following command in your terminal:

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Then after you have changed your file press ctr + o to write the file and then ctr + x to exit the editor.

Hope this helps.
