Hello and welcome.
Are you using Kali as a standard day-to-day distro (working system)?
They changed the way a user is always “root”.
The standard user “kali” has the pw “kali”.
On installation you have the possibility to create a standard user as you wish.

thank you…i solved it.
Could you explain your solution, so further readers can profit from it? Thank you.
set a user,password,run it as administor.open terminal and reboot( can be skipped).
log in your user and password,then you can install all software safely.
