It seems you are mixing sid with stable & also kali has it's own repos which shouldn't be mixed with debian.
If you want to add repos you need to go back to the kali docs page which will tell you which repos that you should use. If you're using kali comment out or remove the references to debian.

Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade

Okay i updated and upgraded, but now when i do:

Code:
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
I get:

Code:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package linux-headers-generic is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'linux-headers-generic' has no installation candidate

You need to execute this command in a terminal:
Code:
uname -r
Let's call the output of the above command OUTPUT.
Now you need to execute this command:
Code:
sudo apt-get linux-headers-OUTPUT
where you have replaced OUTPUT with whatever the output of your uname -r command was.
jdk

are you also aware that in Kali "networking" is DISABLED by default

you have to turn it on for wireless
-- a security feature
-- see #2 in the below link
http://docs.kali.org/introduction/sh...use-kali-linux

Kali is a single purpose OS
but together by security EXPERTS!!!
for use BY SECURITY EXPERTS !!!
and READ the "should i use kali"
http://docs.kali.org/introduction/sh...use-kali-linux

a good rule of thumb for kali( and it's predecessor BT5 )
is
" do you have at least a 6 year masters degree in CS ?"
if not
then you might want to use something else

Code:
sudo apt-get linux-headers-3.14-kali1-amd64
Returns

Code:
E: Invalid operation linux-headers-3.14-kali1-amd64
Which Distro would you suggest for new linux users. Ive tried out ubuntu, but I like using a CLI more than a GUI.

"install" is missing. The command should be:
Code:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.14-kali1-amd64
jdk

Quote:
ifup wlan0

In my network manager tab in the upper right of the screen, however, it says "Wirless Networks (Broadcom BCM4331 802.11a/b/g/n)".

Shouldnt it say "ralink" since its no longer the macintosh's internal broadcom chipset im using?

I did
Code:
ifconfig wlan0 down
to make sure i wasnt using the broadcom chip, but it staill says broadcom.
