Kubuntu takes over 5 minutes to boot up

If it takes you several minutes to get to the BIOS screen the problem is
likely not with Kubuntu, might be a dying HD.

Also do you dual boot with Windows10? Because that is also a cause for
long waits during boot. (Windows 10 achieves it's fast boot times with a
trick, it does not really shut down, but goes into sort of a hibernation
state. So if you boot into another OS after running Win10 you first have
to wait for it to wake up and then actually power down, before the boot
process of the other OS can even start to commence.)
