The package "cryptsetup-initramfs" is now included in Kali, if ever you do a fresh install from a weekly image, or if you wait for 2021.4 to be released (soon). So there should be no need to install it, hence no more problem? Also to be honest I have no idea what this error is about, I didn't find anything in the Debian bug tracker...

I just filed to notify the Debian package maintainer.
