      Providing this to help future upgraders if they run across this problem.

      After successfully installing Kali Linux 2009.3 (native) on Raspberry Pi 3, I performed the upgrade:

      • root@kali:~# apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

      This process hung near the end of the (very long) upgrade process. After interrupting it and rebooting, the filesystem was corrupt and unfixable. To fix this, I started the installation again, creating again the native Kali SD card and booting it. After boot, though, I set default to text mode:

      • root@kali:~# systemctl set-default multi-user.target

      After reboot into text mode, I performed the update and upgrade successfully. I added the full Kali suite of tools and then performed an “apt full-upgrade” to be safe. I then returned to graphical mode:

      • root@kali:~# systemctl set-default graphical.target

      After reboot. the Pi is working properly and is ready to proceed with Kali operations with the full suite of tools.
