See the announcement at:


Maybe what would resolve the problem for you would be to firs follow the 
instructions on this point:

"Remove previous KDE 4 packages, they are not compatible (apt-get remove 
kdelibs5 kde4base-data kde4libs-data)"

I managed to install the KDE4 version of Kate with no problems on my Kubuntu 
setup. So, it should work.
