Share this now
I have been trying to install Linux headers for Kali Linux 2017 on my machine and I have tried every possible solution on the internet but it always show “Unable to locate packages “.
E: Unable to locate package linux-headers-4.9.0-kali3-amd64
E: Couldn’t find any package by glob ‘linux-headers-4.9.0-kali3-amd64’
E: Couldn’t find any package by regex ‘linux-headers-4.9.0-kali3-amd64’
After days of googling, I found a solution for installing the linux-headers
The Problems I Faced
What I was trying to do was, trying to install virtual box. Every time I install virtualbox and start virtualbox service, I always ended up with an error. After further troubleshooting, I found that the real issue was with my linux headers. During dependency check, if missing, installer will prompt that kernel headers should be installed.
