apt upgrade is not a good idea when using a rolling distro!!
Just use

sudo parrot-upgrade

if your system is still working you have to clean it before upgrading.
remove old kernels and autoremove and autoclean system before you try again.

search here in the forum. it pumps your knowledge about parrotlinux to the next level! :wink:
