Unhappy 111: Connection refused

Hi Guys,
I am new at linux but had some technical experience in the past in my old companies.. I am somewhat familiar with basics (installations, configuration vi etc). But I came across an issue that I can't pass by. I am working on a Mac with parallel 13. and I installed Kali linux 2017.2 and when I try to install chrome or do an apt-get update I get the 111: connection refused error. I have tried everything and nothing works.. I need help. I tried to update the hosts file in etc/hosts with vi for the to resolve and nothing. Can you help me disable the firewall and how to fix this issue ? thank you in advance guys anything is appreciated..

It's used to good Kali but you should know exactly what you are doing since it's an OS for pen testing.

Here's a link, it might help:

Good luck and Welcome to LQ!

Try installing the firmware for your wireless card.

Look in the Manual and the Documentation when you get a chance.:-

Connection refused: {not sure if that's what's going on}

-::-IF I'm not mistaken wifi in Kali Linux is disabled by default-::-

Hope that helps.
