You need the Web Archiver tool to be installed. On 9.10 this is provided by 
konq-plugins but on 8.0 the package name might be konqueror-plugins or maybe 
konqueror-plugin-minitools. Do a search for it: 

apt-cache search "Web Archiver"

and make sure it is installed. Maybe purge it and reinstall. Also make sure 
that the plugin is enabled in Konqueror.
