Upgrading KDE

I have upgraded KDE (mostly). There is the problem. I put the Alioth
repository in my source.list and proceeded to do an apt-get
dist-upgrade. This gave me KDE 3.4.1; but only those things which I
already had. So, I did apt-get install kde. It downloaded all of the
packages, but there are two problems:

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  kdeaddons: Depends: konq-plugins (>= 4:3.3.2-4) but it is not installable
  kdeedu: Depends: kdeedu-data (>= 4:3.3.2-3) but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or
specify a solution).

I tried apt-get -f install:

apt-get -f install

I think the problem is here: konq-plugins_4%3a3.3.2-4_i386.deb
specifically, the percentage sign. I have never seen that before.
Could this be a glitch of sorts that needs rectifying? And, why is it
giving me things from 3.3.2? I want 3.4.1, which is why I did the
apt-get dist-upgrade TO KDE 3.4.1. Is this a little odd? A bug,

Thank you Kindly.
