This looks OK. But going through the archives, I found this:

Or just install same kdelibs-data again with --force-confmiss.  No need
to do a purge before:

        dpkg -i --force-confmiss /var/cache/apt/archives/kdelibs-data_.....deb

You'll see some additional output like

        Configuration file `........', does not exist on system.
        Installing new config file as you request.


Anyway, I wanted to blame you for not using Google or so. But I couldn't find 
anything with it. Only using kmails-search... Perhaps the search-form on 
debian.org should include a check-box 'search in titles only'??
 I hope it helps,
