What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)

If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:

Firstly refresh repo (apt update) mayne it’s on repo

  1. for installing tar file. Not need anytool


 tar --help | man tar 

Why use tools when you avle to easily do with simple commands
Or required for your install?

If not in repo & you really need it ; then
Find out it at Google as Deb, or install it whatever from where you trust

Oh…thank you
