Please file a bug in Launchpad, as this is a packaging issue.

Again, please file a bug report, but in so you can work
directly with the developers.

In my fresh install of vivid beta:

$ apt-cache policy update-manager-kde
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1:15.04.2
  Version table:
     1:15.04.2 0
        500 vivid/universe amd64 Packages

Is it installed for you? If not, does installing it give you the proper updates?
