    conky - highly configurable system monitor (transitional package)
    conky-cli - highly configurable system monitor (basic version)
    conky-std - highly configurable system monitor (default version)
    conky-all - highly configurable system monitor (all features enabled)
    Sounds like your repositories are incorrect, I would fix them and try again.

    Check your repos please: Keep them minimal and clean:

    deb kali main non-free contrib
    deb kali/updates main contrib non-free

    Try that.
