Forum Thread: What Is Wrong with My Kali! Can't Access Wi-Fi and Won't Update/Upgrade.

When I check my wifi, it just shows a black box at the top right and if you go into the settings no wifis come up to connect to. I can only connect to wifi through my wifi adapter. When I am connected to wifi through my adapter I try to update and get this error:

Think about what you were doing before your wi-fi dropped.
