I suggest you reconsider using Kali. Kali is not for beginners. The question suggests that you might find the Kali experience frustrating.

Kali is a security related OS so everything needs to be done by you the user and will not be done automatically. One of those manual things is adding a key for installing. The whole idea of Kali is that you do not depend on others as others can not be trusted so you either know how the system works or you investigate how to do it.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
