Have you set your time zone using the GUI config tool in [Menu] --> [Preferences] or sudo raspi-config?

After the last upgrade you must do sudo apt update again. If you don't then NOTHING will be found.

It is a good idea to sudo apt update before attempting to do any installation or upgrade.

I am pretty sure that there have been several posts here regarding Powerboost 1000. As I remember the PB 1000 is not suitable to run a RPi3B (without screen) so RPi3B+ would be even worse.

If you are asking about serial terminal software then minicom is the old standard.
Cutecom is a GUI based package. There are several others in the repository.

After doing the above then install:
