The command that you are running to modify the sources.list isn't correct. You have EOF (with 'o' letter) and E0F (with a cero)
This is the correct command (no need for ctrl+C)

cat <<EOF >/etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
EOF

Then run 'sudo apt update' and you'll be able to install everything again
