Steven have you added the correct line to your sources.list:

To do this:
Open System Settings
click on "add remove software"
click on "settings" in the left pane
click "edit software sources" in the right pane
enter your password if needed
when the box pops up click on the "third party software" tab at the top of the 
box
Click on add button at the bottom
when the box pops up copy and paste the proceeding line into the box:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

Make sure the new entry is checked and click on "close" button
a box will pop up with a "reload" button, click this button

then click on the "Updates" tab and put a check mark next to:

"Pre-release updates"

I don't know if you have to check "unsupported updates" or not, maybe another 
list member can verify that for us.

Finally you can update 1 of 2 ways, use the update icon down by the clock or 
use the "add remove software"

Let me know if you've already taken these steps and we'll take it from there.
