Upgrade bugs from 14.10 to 15.04

I recently upgraded my Kubuntu system from 14.10 to 15.04 by accident, I
say accident because last time I did this my system was hosed and I had to
do a fresh install. I suggest removing that annoying upgrade system button
from the updates available UI. In fact make it a separate notice alogether
that I can choose to disable once notified.

So my system seems broken but mostly usable, after upgrade I get odd
crashes when I open system setting dialogs (not always, so far 2 or 3

Initally the "UI" update that is launched from taskbar notification didn't
complete the upgrade. However system settings said I had the latest version
15.04. At this point the desktop looked the same as 14.10.

Two days later, I tried a upgrade using the command line, 'sudo apt-get
dist-upgrade', this in fact has some issues also. I had to use the command
line because the upgrade notification no longer showed up as a button in
the update notification UI.

1. At the end of 2nd upgrade I was told to do a force install of items that
failed to install, which I did.

2. I rebooted and did the following things again:

  $ sudo apt-get update
  $ sudo apt-get upgrade
  $ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Finally I had to run the 'apt-get dist-upgrade' command a few *more* times.
I even run the autoclean, autoremove, purge commands.

3) Now I get odd crashes from system dialogs, when I open the setting
dialog and do something.

4) I cannot change the desktop Wallpaper, when the 'Image' dialog is opened:

a) No images are shown
b) i cannot seen or navigate to sub-folders
c) I can't download wallpaper, see error saying
download.kde.org/ocs/providers.xml failed.
If I manually type the folder location, this doesn't show images in the

5) When I put my system to sleep (overnight) when I try to wake it up the
screen rendering is messed up and unviewable, or it's black.Here is a video
I captured with my cell phone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxcQhPmF374

About putting the system to sleep, bug only happens overnight, if I put the
system to sleep and wake it after a few minutes everything is OK. What is
different is I am able to wake it using my keyboard. Overnight my wireless
keyboard goes to sleep and I have to use the power button to wake the
system up. So not sure if how I am waking the system up is part of the
problem. I will try this after send this email out.
