Just because BT5 isn't supported anymore doesn't mean that it isn't useful.

The heart of the issue is that the SVNs info for those two are incorrect. The repo for se-toolkit was moved to github and the url for w3af is wrong

Using your favorite editor edit the se-tools postinstall file and comment out or remove the snv line and put in a line for git.


Here is my /var/lib/dpkg/info/se-toolkit.postinst:

rm -rf /pentest/exploits/set/ 2> /dev/null
cd /pentest/exploits/
#svn co set/
git clone set/
Again, using your editor of choice replace the URL of the SVN.
This time we edit the w3af file.

/var/lib/dpkg/info/w3af.postinst :
cd /tmp/
tar zxpf pybloomfiltermmap-0.2.0.tar.gz
cd pybloomfiltermmap-0.2.0
python install
cd ..
rm -rf pybloomfiltermmap-0.2.0*
cd /pentest/web/
svn co w3af
This solved the issue for me!
