Not sure how its broke.
Uninstalling it and reinstalling from the latest package will fix it for
you though easily...

 I just followed the directions on the metasploit site, here:


Perhaps someone can check out if that is a valid (or best site to download
from?) download site?

Thank you.

Chip, is this the first time this machine has been updated in a while?
 The updater was changed to use git, and maybe if you didn't get an updated
msfupdate, it could be jacked up, however I don't think they shutdown the
svn server yet so... someone else on here will know.  You could  try
updating svn, apt-get update && apt-get install svn I think, if it's out of
date.  Just spitballin tho.

I'm receiving the following error message when I attempt to do an
msfupdate of metasploit v4.5.0-release [core:4.5 api:1.0] on a backtrack 5
r3 machine:

./msfupdate:156:in '<main>': Cannot determine checkout type: '.'

Any hints on why this may be happening or how to correct?

Thank you.
