I couldn't figure out why I couldn't install a simple package.  This is what's annoying about cutting edge Debian distros, yes we know you support each license on average for 1-2 years but why take down the supporting binary packages and basically disable the older versions?

Solution Upgrade your Ubuntu/Kubuntu distro

You're being forced to upgrade to a newer distro so run the following.

sudo apt-get install update-manager-core

vi /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and set Prompt=normal

 

sudo do-release-upgrade

This will download a lot of packages and then run through an upgrade/prompt process replacing/upating different packages and will then finally reboot.

I was impressed that the upgrade was quite smooth and without problem or event so that's the good news.  I only did it though because I couldn't install new packages.
