LOL, sorry I have to have a slight giggle here. In this thread: there are 2 suggestions given, yet you posted your method which clearly according to this post doesn't work.

The syntax is probably incorrect.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in the Ubuntu forum and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

You need to enable the universe repository if you want to install all of KDE. You probably don't need all of KDE anyway, so the commands below will do
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install kde-core


apt-get, found, install, kde, sudo
