Can't instlal Manager on Kali Linux

I have the newset Kali running:
Kali GNU/Linux 2017.3, 64bit
Kernel version 4.13.0-kali1-amd64

I have download the latest Manager.deb from Cannot install due to dependency problems, that I cannot solve. Here is the log:

sudo dpkg -i Manager.deb

Please help.

This looks very similar to this :- RPM broken on Fedora 27 - webkitgtk no longer provided

That said, (and with the very greatest of respect), is Kali really the sort of distro that one should consider using for a production accounting suite…

Really not. I have just ran into some problems after buying a new laptop with Realtek Wifi card having a bug of disconnecting in Debian 9. Kali seemed to work, so just for a while I will keep it. But in the mean time, I need that wifi working.

Yeah - Debian can sometimes do that to you and be pretty fickle about anything “non-free”…
Don’t get me wrong, Kali is great for a good many tasks/jobs, but it’s just that running everything as root does not typically sit well with my (crusty old f@rt) sensibilities if you know what I mean.
You might find one of the *buntu’s more suited to a production type machine where just about every hardware eventuality is catered for, and being Debian based, quite familiar

I don’t have your HW, but a Ubuntu LTS or CentOS release is more … production grade.

The usual method on Debian-based systems of missing dependencies is to not run ‘apt-get install mising-package-name’ but ‘apt-get -f install’ (-f for ‘fix’). This does not solve your problem but …

Got rid of Kali, now with Debian 9, everything works fine.
