first do you have terminal linked to keyboard shortcut if so try your shortcut and see if it response if not after that error try alt+f2 and type TerminalEmulator with tab key on keyboard after typing terminal if tab will not complete phrase then
try this:
when you're in login panel after kali boots up press ctrl+alt+ f3 and login normally and try to type apt install gnome-terminal if you have gnome if you have xfce xfce4-terminal
