Just to clarify, there are no Plasma 5 packages for 12.04. The package you reference, kde-full, is a Debian specific meta-package that  simply causes the entire set of KDE packages.

The meta-package itself that you see is actually at version 71, the "5:" is an "epoch" number, and is there specifically for versioning purposes, and is completely unrelated to the version of KDE.

Providing the output requested by Jörn will help greatly in figuring out the real problem here.
