From your screenshot, it seems that you are installing Kali Linux. I also have Kali installed and it is doing just fine. I followed the guide from Kali official website and the installation guide on the Kali website is straight forward already.

Most likely, your error comes from the ISO file that you've downloaded. Download the installer file via torrent, from the link below. Choose the installer version.

You need to edit the repository file
Code:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
add these two lines to it if not present
Code:
deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
Code:
#deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
Now press the CTRL+O for saving the /etc/apt/sources.list file. And CTRL+X for exit from nano text editor.
Now run
Code:
sudo apt update
Now you need to install the desktop Kali come in 3 flavors - Xfce, Gnome and KDE - pick the one you want
Code:
sudo apt install -y kali-desktop-xfce
Code:
sudo apt install -y kali-desktop-gnome
Code:
sudo apt install -y kali-desktop-kde
once the desktop is installed now reboot using
Code:
sudo init 6
