Does it ask for your password in text mode only?

If so type in your password and hit Enter.
If it stays in text mode after that type startx and see if it gives you a GUI.

Are you using Gnome? KDE? XFCE? LXDE? or Mate?

Try typing

startx



where the cursor is ,that might bring up your desktop.also dollar sign show your in normal user mode so apt-get etc will be denied.now on pc; looking at screen shot i can see where you logged in as normal user. inittab settings might have changed.

Try putting "sudo" before the command.

sudo apt-get update (or whatever the rest of the command is )

Using sudo before the command should work.

Did you check the integrity of the .iso file of Kali before you installed it?
