Why have you not asked Kali Forums?

Because the moderators there have little patience there for those that want to use Kali against their recommendations.

Kali is not meant to be installed and used as your regular OS. Run it off a Live USB for penetration testing, if that's what you want it for.

Standard copypaste for those that want it cuz itz kewl:

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.

If you're interested in any of the tools Kali includes, they can be installed on basically any normal Linux distro.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Foliate 1.5.3, Minitube 3.1, wine-staging 4.14, Virtual Box 5.2.32 & 6.0.10, Pale Moon 28.6.1, Waterfox 56.2.13

Well, I am going to give 3rd, basically same response. The OP should use the kali documentation, and install it like they recommend, and use it as intended, from a usb stick, after they have learned a little about it and using it.

Is Kali Linux Right For You?

As the distribution’s developers, you might expect us to recommend that everyone should be using Kali Linux. The fact of the matter is, however, that Kali is a Linux distribution specifically geared towards professional penetration testers and security specialists, and given its unique nature, it is NOT a recommended distribution if you’re unfamiliar with Linux or are looking for a general-purpose Linux desktop distribution for development, web design, gaming, etc.

Even for experienced Linux users, Kali can pose some challenges. Although Kali is an open source project, it’s not a wide-open source project, for reasons of security. The development team is small and trusted, packages in the repositories are signed both by the individual committer and the team, and — importantly — the set of upstream repositories from which updates and new packages are drawn is very small. Adding repositories to your software sources which have not been tested by the Kali Linux development team is a good way to cause problems on your system.

While Kali Linux is architected to be highly customizable, don’t expect to be able to add random unrelated packages and repositories that are “out of band” of the regular Kali software sources and have it Just Work. In particular, there is absolutely no support whatsoever for the apt-add-repository command, LaunchPad, or PPAs. Trying to install Steam on your Kali Linux desktop is an experiment that will not end well. Even getting a package as mainstream as NodeJS onto a Kali Linux installation can take a little extra effort and tinkering.

If you are unfamiliar with Linux generally, if you do not have at least a basic level of competence in administering a system, if you are looking for a Linux distribution to use as a learning tool to get to know your way around Linux, or if you want a distro that you can use as a general purpose desktop installation, Kali Linux is probably not what you are looking for.
In addition, misuse of security and penetration testing tools within a network, particularly without specific authorization, may cause irreparable damage and result in significant consequences, personal and/or legal. “Not understanding what you were doing” is not going to work as an excuse.

However, if you’re a professional penetration tester or are studying penetration testing with a goal of becoming a certified professional, there’s no better toolkit — at any price — than Kali Linux.

With that said, I don't see any reason for this topic/thread to continue, of course, if the OP is interested in installing Debian, instead , then they would be welcome to start a new topic on that if they have any questions after reading some of the documentation first.
There also all ready some topics on other distros, as alternatives to Debian, some are a little easier to install then pure Debian, but again , that would be another topic, probably best in the "off topic" forum
