Unclear what your issue is, this line looks suspicious:

trying to overwrite '/usr/bin/beef', which is also in package beef 0.0.6-2.

There's a file conflict with the "beef" package, beef-xss should provide a /usr/bin/beef-xss instead of /usr/bin/beef to avoid that file conflict.

Thanks for the update. Is this a BeEF issue or a Kali implementation of BeEF?

Should be fixed with beef-xss thut got just uploaded into kali-proposed-updates. Please report if you still have the problem with that version. Note that it requires you to upgrade kali-menu to a newer version (1.369).
