But I do not think permissions on all the files is a crucial thing. For
example, you might be having lot of packages under /var/cache/apt/archives/
which might explain that huge number. I am able to install and remove
packages. So the problem might not be with /var/cache/apt/archives

I am more interested in the permissions of files which kde looks into.
