As mentioned purge steam using a Terminal while pressing Ctrl + Alt + T and type in:

sudo apt-get purge steam 

Ten you should look to your Home folder: /home/'username'. Inside that folder make hidden files visible by pressing Ctrl + H in Ubuntu (Kubuntu is 'Ctrl + .' as far as I remember). Then look for a folder called .steam - this folder can be deleted since all steam config-files should be in there (if you want to be cautious witch is usually better - rename it) Then look to /home/'username'/.local/share : here is another steam folder. This steam folder contains all the games you downloaded. Rename that one too

Now you have a steam-free system. Open up the software center, type steam into the search and install the given steam result. Otherwise you could just type:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install steam

Now start steam and follow the instructions.
