kubuntu kde install/update problem


kubuntu 8.10, had kde 4.1, tried to update to kde 4.2... now have ???

Attempting to resolve a VIA graphics card/Google Earth problem, I read to try updating KDE 4.1 to 4.2.2 through the adept tool that shows up in the tray at the bottom of the screen.

after following what I thought was a simple process, I am now trapped in the command line console.

tried "sudo apt-get install kde" but the list of dependencies is ridiculously long and it says "broken packages" at the bottom.

EEK- PLEASE HELP sorry I am only 3-days linux-deep!

UPDATE: running apt-get update yields several of these:
GPG Error... intrepid Release: The following signature couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY <gobledee-gook>

Found it after hours of searching...

Someone else with the same problem discovered:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

"comment out deb intrepid main in /etc/apt/souces.list, then run apt-get update"
