        dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/kdemultimedia-kio-plugins_4%3a3.5.0-2bpo1_i386.deb

This will cause dpkg to over write the files. As you are fixing a backports issue, I'd just over write it.

Then go and do "apt-get upgrade" or "apt-get dist-upgrade" and your machine should carry on from there.
