[Bug 1845922] [NEW] [FFE] Update to latest kstars (3.3.6) in Eoan

Public bug reported:

Kstars development over the last 6 months has seen a lot of releases,
and has been hard to keep track of, so we have slipped to quite an old
version in the archive.

(my fault)

As always with Kstars, the benefits of being able to ship the latest
version at the time of a Kubuntu release far outweighs the risk of
regression. Even should there be a regression, upstream fixes are rapid,
so a SRU is very possible.

While kstars nearly always mixes some new features into point releases,
they do focus mostly on bug fixes and polish. We should note that we are
wanting to update here to the 6th point release (3.3.6) of the 3.3
series, so this should represent minimal risk.

Regardless, as a Kubuntu developer I will commit to doing all I can to
mitigate any issue that may be found as a result of this FFE (pre and
post release).
