Can you make sure you are up to date and try again please? This issue was fixed in a more recent change so you may not have it yet.

All packages are up to date, this is a new bug, the other one was related to how the configuration file was invoked. This one on the contrary indicates that the configuration file is not found.

You're right, I can see the same on my end.

By default it seems the samba daemon does not run and therefore kali-tweaks fails due to that. Upon running sudo samba and then re-running kali-tweaks and entering the hardening menu, it works properly.

Bug reported and fixed in Debian:

I uploaded the fix in Kali as well. The fix is in the samba package, and you need version 2:4.16.1+dfsg-4~kali1 or higher. The package with the fix should hit the Kali mirrors in a few hours.

Thanks a lot for the report !
