This is an unfortunate side effect of installing from the Live image instead of the installer ISO. To work around it, simply "sudo apt purge --autoremove raspi-firmware"

Does this issue also affect the VM image of Kali? I'm having issues with the repos. I can't update or upgrade.

If you are using Windows as a host and use anything besides Windows Defender (such as MalwareBytes Premium (trial etc.)), the AV can block the traffic. I suggest you check your AV settings/client(s).

It appears to be a network issue - and unable to talk to

Could you check for network access? Can you also confirm that DNS is working?
