Did you run `sudo apt update` before installing?

Is that exact error message? As I don't think the package name is correct

Please open a bug report with $ ubuntu-bug kubuntu-desktop

And include all logs.

in you having a different experience to the one intended. There are many
aspects of installation that are customized from desktop flavour installer
