    Hi there,

    This will sort you out

    Open terminal or if you can't get into the GUI boot into Kali recovery mode and run:
    Code:
    apt-get autoremove
    After that, reboot (if you are in recovery) or if still in terminal run:
    Code:
    apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
    and you should have no more errors.

    Reinstall what was removed
    Code:
    apt-get install libnet-daemon-perl libplrpc-perl memtest86+ syslinux-themes-debian syslinux-themes-debian-wheezy
