I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a human moderator to assist.

Go to File>Open Citra Folder, delete the nand folder found here and restart Citra. Now redownload or redump your system files and try again.

I have done that 5 times

Are you downloading the system files through Emulation>Configure>System? Or are you providing your own dumped home menu?

I have been downloading the new 3ds firmware from the settings in citra and do you know a way I could download a home menu like a .cia or what

Please redump your keys: AES Keys - Citra
Then download the system files again.

I have also I have downloaded some people’s aes keys but the all don’t let me do anything except one

You’re supposed to dump your own keys, not download somebody else’s. Please follow the guide I’ve given you. Most AES key files out there are using outdated keys.

I don’t feel like plugging in and powering on my 2ds

the aes_keys.txt is from last year

Then they could either be outdated, or not. Regardless, you need the updated keys.

Ok I will try to dump my 2ds later
