Hi,

Thanks for packaging KDE for Ubuntu!  That is much appreciated.

You are no doubt aware of the following issue: the Kubuntu PPAs are
missing Source files.  This causes a 404 error in "apt-get update"
and aptitude.  Unfortunately, the 404 triggers a bug in the Xenial
version of aptitude that causes that program to hang indefinitely
(see Ubuntu bug #1634372).

In particular, having the following lines present in
/etc/apt/sources.list causes this problem:

  deb     http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu yakkety main
  deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu yakkety main
  deb     http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/ppa/ubuntu yakkety main
  deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/ppa/ubuntu yakkety main

Running "apt-get update" gives the following error and warning
lines:

  W: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu 
yakkety Release' does not have a Release file.
  N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore 
potentially dangerous to use.
  N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration 
details.
  W: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/ppa/ubuntu yakkety 
Release' does not have a Release file.
  N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore 
potentially dangerous to use.
  N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration 
details.
  E: Failed to fetch

  404  Not Found
  E: Failed to fetch 
http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/ppa/ubuntu/dists/yakkety/main/source/Sources
  404  Not Found
  E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones 
used instead.

Could you please look into these errors and warnings.  They are
present not only for the "yakkety" release, but for previous
releases of Ubuntu as well.

Yours truly,

John Zaitseff
