    Lightbulb [Sharing] : Solving msfconsole & msfupdate issue after update metasploit to 4.5.0 bt0

    Dear all,

    I'd like to share my experience for solving metasploit ( msfconsole & msfupdate ) issue :

    After I update My BackTrack 5 R3 using apt-get update and apt-get upgrade , there is an issue with Metasploit ( msfconsole and msfupdate can’t run via console / Just blinking cursor ) .

    First I just curious in the msf3 directory and I found the msf3 directory in the /opt/metasploit was empty. I try to unzip msf3.zip to create the msf3 directory, and It was successfully then I run msfconsole again. But after I run msfconsole the issue was not solved yet as well as with the msfupdate .

    Then I just remember that the Metasploit will allow user to update the metasploit from git protocol. OK then I’m reading the manual of Metasploit’s github. And Finally the issue was solved by following the two steps below :

    1. cd /opt/metasploit
    2. git clone https://github.com/rapid7/metasploit-framework.git msf3



    After the git clone process finished, try to run msfconsole again.

    Now I’m able to run msfconsole and msfupdate





    I hope this is useful for you all

    IMHO , there is no issue with the armitage .

    Make sure the metasploit always be up to update

    Worked for me too!
    After the R2 to R3 upgrade, msfconsole wouldn't run. I had the blinking cursor only. Just did your trick and it works nice now
    Thanks man

    Hello,
    I have backtrack 5r3 installed in virtual box.
    I can get updates for the os but I cant update the metasploit.
    I have no idea what to do next, have tried the solutions which showed up in google eg ln -s /usr/lib/libssl.so.0.9.8
    I am behind a proxy, can do normal works, surfing etc.
    Have a look
