fix msfupdate error

All posts tagged fix msfupdate error

Good evening friends. We have seen how to exploit many recent vulnerabilities using Metasploit. ( Go here, if you missed them ). Metasploit is a pentesting software which is by default installed in Kali Linux. Metasploit releases updates  every wednesday with the latest exploits. See the video or scroll through for textual howto.


In order to get the latest exploits, we need to regularly update the Metasploit framework by typing command “msfupdate” as shown below.


But in our latest version of Kali Linux, i.e Kali Linux rolling 2016.1, as soon we start Metasploit after updating, we are getting the following error.


Fixing this error is very simple. We just need to install ruby on our system. Type command apt-get install ruby as shown below.


After ruby installation is finished, start Metasploit. It should open successfully as shown below. It is that much simple to fix msfupdate error in Kali Linux. Happy hacking.
