FYI, apt-get install does not update your system...

j/k


If you swapped sources then maybe try a dist-upgrade

Sounds to me like something has been updated or installed out side of apt OR that some non-standard repos have been added to sources.list at some point.  Not sure otherwise why you'd have an ubuntu package in a debian distro if using only official sources.
rm -rf /bin/laden

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

Because all the cool kids want to create their "own unique custom" OS and attempt to make it stable and up to date with security updates probably.
"own custom" == throwing in kalis source list into the OS' source list
very unique if you ask me. no ones ever done that before

Just wipe your sources.list add (2nd part of this post) kali repo only, and check what you have inside /etc/apt/sources.list.d folder as well, hope that you didn't mess system, run apt update && apt upgrade and see what will happen.

But from I can see, here you have only one repo that you need to have on your sources.list. And they are saying: "Any additional repositories added to the Kali sources.list file will most likely BREAK YOUR KALI LINUX INSTALL."
