Are you sure xchat is part of the repository?

apt-get clean && apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y && apt-get dist-upgrade -y

then retry.

Greetings, if it is part of the Kali repo it may be in the bleeding edge repo. add that then run the command again if not. wget it in and install it.

got lot of updates but no results
wget as well dont give any results
