The change from Plasma4 (which 14.10 uses) and Plasma5 (which 15.04)
is quite drastic. I'm wondering if you actually upgraded to 15.04,
what does 'lsb_release -a' tell you?

Side note: 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' doesn't perform a release
upgrade, in Ubuntu 'sudo do-release-upgrade' does that. It has allways
been confusing... 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' can be seen as 'apt-get
update++'. It has the rights to install, or remove, other packages
when dependencies change. 'apt-get upgrade' does not have that right.

Hope this helps,
