    The problem could be that the repo was down for maintenance. Or maybe it doesn't like you. Anyrate make sure your internet connection is working and then try again, as I have been using it did have the same error earlier in the day, but now it works just fine.

    I'm just gonna throw this out there... don't know if this could be yr issue or not, but I just had this happen to me ::

    Code:
    root@bt:~# apt-get update
    0% [Waiting for headers]^C
    root@bt:~# apt-get update
    0% [Waiting for headers]^C
    root@bt:~# apt-get update
    0% [Connecting to archive.offensive-security.com (94.23.3.208)]^C
    root@bt:~# apt-get update
    0% [Waiting for headers]^C
    root@bt:~# apt-get update
    0% [Waiting for headers]^C
    root@bt:~# apt-get update
    0% [Waiting for headers]^C
    root@bt:~# apt-get update
    0% [Waiting for headers]^C
    root@bt:~# apt-get update
    0% [Waiting for headers]^C
    I had synaptic package manager OPEN at the same time I was trying to "apt-get update" -- /me smacks forehead! -- the "apt-get update" would show that it was resolving/connecting to "archive.offensive-security.com (94.23.3.208)", then would only get to 0% and keep saying "waiting for headers"... "waiting for headers"

    so, for the heck of it I ran "apt-get upgrade" ::
    Code:
    root@bt:~# apt-get upgrade
    E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
    it's quite nice to get a relevant error message, eh?
    so, I removed the file /var/lib/dpkg/lock
    Code:
    root@bt:~# rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock
    BOOM! updates and upgrades are flowing again

    Code:
    root@bt:~# apt-get update

    Reading package lists... Done
    turns out, while I am posting this message, I noticed I had synaptic package manager open the WHOLE time... which causes the lock to begin with. so, yeah... I caused my own issue.

    ...and that's my 2 pennies...
