Msfupdate not working with "no version information available" error.

No version available and blah blah blah. For that, i ignored it for a couple of days due to workload and downloaded exploits manually. But when it seemed kiddish to me, i got into roots. I soon realized that the "no version information available" error , here, meant that the library metasploit does not have a version to refer and hence it is not updating to any further version. Was quite kiddish, but realistic too. So i checked its libraries :

Create a link between the library msf and /usr/lib/

Once you are done with all this stuff, go ahead and update your metasploit. You will get a smile on your face.

So this was how you dont need to put back your actions if you get any error anywhere, just like in case of msf. 

Enjoy hacking, enjoy exploitation. :)
