Just a guess: Your CPU doesn't have AVX support and whoever made that Kali package should have produced an SSE2 binary, or provided fallback binaries. If you're not sure about your CPU, try this: grep -q avx /proc/cpuinfo && echo Yep || echo Nope If I'm right you should report it to Kali developers as a bug (unless someone already did - is this the latest Kali?). magnum
