Desktop Migration issues in Ubuntu 19.10

Having issues converting my Ubuntu 19.10 install to Kubuntu. I believe I've installed all the necessary packages for KDE Plasma to run, but when I try to fetch updates in Discover, Discover just seems to spin its wheels forever. I tried updating my packages in the terminal using sudo apt update, which did help, but running Discover afterwards to get updates doesn't work. Is there a package I forgot to install in the migration process or something? Maybe something that has to do with package management?

There is usually a meta package that does the task of installing it, last time I did it, it was kubuntu-desktop I think it was called, search and see if you have installed it. It does not actually convert the install just give the option for that session when you login. You can do similar with the other desktops they offer too, having the ability to switch between them. And it is still there.


kde plasma 5, ubuntu
