I installed KDE Plasma 5.6 on Ubuntu 16.04 and all was working right.

A few days ago I tried to install a newer version of KDE Plasma (I tried the staging ppa mentioned here and other trials) and in some way I broke my KDE.

Now I would like to re-install KDE Plasma 5.6, so tried to first remove all traces of KDE and installing it again, basically following the commands used in the past:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

but now I get this error:
