Something broke your desktop during the installation, so kali is only able to load a tty terminal. You can enter there your user and the password and you'll see the shell.
There you can execute the following commands line by line to fix the desktop

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt update
sudo apt --fix-broken install
sudo apt install -y kali-desktop-xfce
sudo reboot
