This does sound that you installed a image without desktop - but thats no problem :)


use the command: armbian-config

In the menu select

System => Minimal (for installing a minimal desktop)


System => Default ( to install a desktop with browser & extras)


If the desktop doesnt start after reboot, then use startx
