This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

This could be a bug. Also version of wubi and kubuntu is not mentioned in question.

Follow below steps,

  1. Download kubuntu ISO →
  2. Download appropriate wubi version.
  3. Put them in same folder.
  4. Run wubi.

Putting an ISO in the wubi folder works great in the mean time.
