Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kdewebdev

I tried to install the Quanta Plus web development in my Intrepid Beta 8.10 via the add/remove GUI.  The package is uninstallable via the GUI and command line.  If via command line I try to resolve the unmet dependencies, kfilereplace will uninstall all of KDE4.

The GUI returns this error:

Cannot install 'quanta'
This application conflicts with other installed software. To install 'quanta' the conflicting software must be removed first.
Switch to the 'synaptic' package manager to resolve this conflict.

This is the Command Line version:

~$ uname -a
Linux skylight 2.6.27-7-generic #1 SMP Fri Oct 24 06:40:41 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux
~$ sudo apt-get install quanta

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  quanta: Depends: kfilereplace (= 4:3.5.10-0ubuntu1) but it is not going to be installed
          Depends: klinkstatus (= 4:3.5.10-0ubuntu1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
