What's going on? Installed Kali Linux yesterday!!!
 


NVM I Fixed it...

Here is the solution:

  1. Enter the command: mousepad /etc/apt/sources.list
  2. Remove everything within that sources.list file
  3. Google for "Kali Linux Repository" or use this link: Kali Linux Repository
  4. Scroll down and look for "The kali-rolling repository"
  5. Copy everything within that kali-rolling and paste on sources.list file
  6. Save the sources.list file
  7. Run the command: apt-get update
  8. Now install your package(e.g:apt-get install tilix)

It appears that the software packages you are looking for are NOT in the Kali Linux repositories.
[email protected]:~/Desktop# ls
GtkD tilix
[email protected]:~/Desktop# apt install tilix
This is not how "apt" works. Apt does not look for packages on your Desktop. It looks for packages in the Kali repositories.

You have a couple ways to go about this.
1.) Add the repositories containing the software you want to your package managers repository list.
2.) Install the software with your packager manager if available. It will need to be packaged for such an installation. Debian based systems can generally use the Gdebi package installer.
3.) Install from source.

I don't use Kali Linux so I am not sure how they do things.

Are you trying to to install the software from a download located in Desktop?
You need to tell apt to look locally for the file and not on the web. It should be .deb package for a Debian install.
example: apt install /root/Desktop/GtkD/gtkd.deb
