Did you take out the multiverse and universe lists ?,,,These can sometimes
cause problems until you have the main system upgraded. The other way is to
try the upgrade and if it takes out a lot of the kde then so be it. You then
do another update and dist-upgrade. I did do have to do a dpkg-reconfigure -a
with the first part of the upgrade this seems to be because of udev and
incompatibilities with the running kernel. Remember your kde settings will be
preserved in the .kde directory in your home folders so you won't lose any of
those..So basically if you are not on a limited download then you could do
the upgrade having it remove a lot, then when you get it back to the terminal
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop to get most of your kde back...I really
can't stress enough though you do need to back up...Mistakes can happen.
