Brefly describe your issue below:
I’m running Parrot Security 4.8.
I was able to run sudo parrot-upgrade and the system updated however I’m getting the message that it’s failing to fetch packages.
What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA, etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64)
I’m running Parrot Security 4.8 64-bit.
What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)
I used a usb flash drive to install Parrot Security.
Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)
If there are any similar issues or solutions, link to them below:
If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:
Unable to fetch some archives. Maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing.
Can you post a screenshot of the error message ? There are several reasons for it failing to get pacakges.
Prior to launch an upgrade, ALWAYS launch
sudo apt update
But, please paste a screenshot of the error.
Yesterday the upgrade was unable to fetch. Today packages are being held back.
Here’s screenshot’s from yesterday and today.
After using sudo apt autoremove now there are warnings.
Its a simple repository redirection error. As you see the repository has https:// but the mirror doesn’t have SSL. So the redirection isn’t allowed. You can fix this by explicitly by specifying http:// in nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/parrot.list
or change your mirror to http:// mirrors.mit.edu .

That file doesn’t exit-
I typed it wrong.
The good news is I was able to change the mirror to http://mirrors.mit.edu/parrot/ rolling main contrib non-free.
Yeah my bad.
Edit: sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/parrot.list
Did it work?
I did another update and everything went well.
Thanks you for your time and your help.
