Kali stuff gets best answered in Kali forums. It's not Debian.
Debian 9.5 Stable with i3

It's a moderated forum, and your post will very probably not make it up, because of this:

Im new to kali and linux at all.

and this:

Standard copypaste for Kali:

Kali Linux is an incredibly specialized and notably unsafe distro designed to be used in a live environment by an incredibly small group of very technically savvy people. You are not part of this group. It is NOT Debian. Please do not use Kali Linux.

The standard suggestion is that you learn about Linux on a normal distro, since it's much easier, safer, and you can also install the tools Kali uses on that normal distro.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Flightgear 2018.2.2, 4..20.6 kernel, wine-staging 4.0 final, Sayonara 1.1.1, Calibre 3.39.1, Pale Moon 28.3.1
