Unhappy Kali linux problem

Hello everone, So today i setted up kali on Vm but i ha an error with network mirror and i skipped it. Now, i entered terminal and wrote apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) ad it said package not found. And some other sommands like if config doesn't work either.
and i didn't seee this image either. And when i came to this it selected automatically and opened. My main problem is it says packages are not found and ifconfig and some other commands are not found. Is there anyway to fix this. I'm using a windows 10 pc and kali linux htt downloaded(latest version just yesterday).

Usually you just install 'linux-headers', and it just installs the correct version.

Although OP seems to never have logged-in since posting,
the 'soft skill' of www-search is much faster&better
than posting 'basic' questions. For example: kali ifconfig not found!!!
