E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
the problem is clearly must be in the sources.list file of  Kali Linux ... i have tried to fix it in many ways but i always end up where i started Hash Sum mismatch is showing up over and over , things seems too complicated for me but the fix was simple really simple ! and here it is
update your Repositories in sources.list file to :
deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
deb http://repo.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib

To do so Follow those steps
open Terminal as root and follow those command :
leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list
on the new Windows ( text file )
remove every line of code
and add this  Repositories
deb http://repo.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib

Save and close the file
Clean, update, upgrade and dist-upgrade your Kali installation
1apt-get clean && apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y && apt-get dist-upgrade -y
I hope this works for you and if it didn't let me know on the comment
