You have something amiss here above. 19 packages not fully installed or
removed is not good. Try dpkg --configure --pending to resolve that.

Simple answer here is a bit ugly, but:
dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/kdebase-libs...deb

Now that Ivan knows, hopefully he'll fix this. But this isn't coming
from unstable... Are these potato packages?

After using --force-overwrite above, all should return to normal. You
may want to run dpkg --configure --pending once again to ensure
everything is functioning smoothly.
