    Updating kdelibs

    When trying to install some software I am getting:
    ERROR: the installed kdelibs version 4.4.2 is too old, at least version 4.5.0 is required
    I tried
    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get upgrade
    but it didn't seem to help.

    I also tried this:
    doriad@davidlaptop:~/bin/kdevplatform$ sudo apt-get install kde-libs

    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      kdelibs-dbg: Depends: qt-x11-free-dbg but it is not going to be installed
      kdelibs5-dev: Conflicts: kdelibs4-dev but 4:3.5.10.dfsg.1-3ubuntu2.10.04.1 is to be installed
    E: Broken packages
    Any thoughts on how to get kdelibs 4.5?

    From the 4.4.2 version number, I assume you are running 10.04 Lucid.

    10.10 Maverick uses the 4.5.1 version, so one option is to upgrade to Maverick.

    You might be able to load backported 4.5.3 onto Lucid from this ppa:
