Just for clarification: Pino uploaded almost all of the Plasma 5.17.5
packages to experimental instead of unstable. Only two of them, those I
initial saw, he uploaded to unstable. I don't expect these two, plasma-
browser-integration and breeze-grub, to break anything regarding Plasma
5.14. As I understand how the thread continued the issue you reported
has not been related to them.
I suggest waiting till the upload of Plasma 5.17 into unstable before
upgrading. The upload to experimental I believe is also to sort out
potential build or dependency issues that when trying to install the
packages may break your Plasma desktop.
