From http://www.kubuntu.org/news/kde-4.2:

"1. Remove the koffice-data-kde4 package if you have it installed. The current    
koffice2 packages in the kubuntu-members-kde4 PPA are incompatible with the KDE  
4.2 packages since they try to install icons to the same locations."

You could use dpkg to force the install /var/cache/apt/archives/koffice-data-
kde4_1%3a1.9.98.5-0ubuntu1~intrepid1_all.deb, but you do so at your own risk 

someone else has newer koffice2 packages in their ppa
https://edge.launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-dias/+archive/ppa, might be worth 
checking out, though I don't  read Portuguese. alsoslo has latest digikam/kipi 
and other things in there as well. I have not tried out the repo myself.
