There is a well known problem with sociability of Unity and KDE desktop installs on Ubuntu.

While  installing kubuntu-desktop you may be confronted with:

Errors were encountered while processing:
 /var/cache/apt/archives/kde-config-telepathy-accounts_4%3a15.12.3-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
 /var/cache/apt/archives/kaccounts-providers_4%3a15.12.3-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Remove the offending unity package first:

# sudo dpkg -r account-plugin-google unity-scope-gdrive
(Reading database ... 278752 files and directories currently installed.)
Removing unity-scope-gdrive (0.9+16.04.20151125-0ubuntu1) ...
Removing account-plugin-google (0.12+16.04.20160126-0ubuntu1) ...
....
# apt-get -f install
