Dependency is not satisfiable: python3-software-properties (= 0.96.24.32.9)


A friend asked me to install the KDE desktop (kubuntu-desktop) on his Mint 19 machine, so I hopped on teamviewer and ran into all sorts of issues that lead me to get stuck at
Code:
Dependency is not satisfiable: python3-software-properties (= 0.96.24.32.9)
when trying to install that version with a .deb through gdebi. When installing python3-software-properties through the repos it gives me version 1.8.4 which is the wrong version. Trying to install software-properties-kde (which Plasma depends on) gives me
Code:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 software-properties-kde : Depends: python3-software-properties (= 0.96.24.32.9) but 1.8.4 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
which lead me to this whole thing with trying to install that particular version of python3-software-properties. I think I just need to install software-properties-kde_0.96.24.32.9_all.deb and all will be fine.
