Big issue installing MongoDB on Kali

Hello All,

I am having a beast of a timne installing MongoDB on my Kali machine. I am trying to do so for a Udemy class, and the instructor has sent us here – Install MongoDB Community Edition on Debian — MongoDB Manual

All is going well up to this step –

I asked aeround on a group in Linkedin, and someone told me these two simple steps, also with no dice –

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

Then try rerunning sudo systemctl start mongod

So anyway, I’m just having a blast dealing with this. If anyone can help a total stranger on the internet out, I would consider it a personal favor.

Many thanks,


I had to add these screenshots as followups here – more error messages and followup –
