    did you upgrade anything?

    after the black screen pressing f2 f3 f4 can you get a terminal ?

    Hack The Box

  • i didnt upgrade anything bur kali upgrades daily (I think! )
    My problem ,after a lot of researching, was that my VM run out of disk because of a huge upgrade that was going on without me knowing on the background.

  • You must be talking about the kali from oscp , i lost my minds with that and almost switched to the old practicing 64 bit kali. Very long annoying story short you have to downgrade the libidn2.0 library to a lower version AFTER reverting the machine. I suppose wget is not working either.

    wget http://mirrors.xmission.com/ubuntu/pool/main/libi/libidn2/libidn2-0_2.0.4-1.1build2_i386.deb

    sudo dpkg -i libidn2-0_2.0.4-1.1build2_i386.deb

    After a revert , chances are apt and dpkg might be busy (ruining your updates) , remove the locks and downgrade manually.

  • many thanks.
