You should make sure that you update your packages to the latest
version, by issuing:

    # aptitude full-upgrade

LaTeX is typically not included in the tasks you've installed, but that
does not mean that you can not install it. It has already been noted in
this thread that you have to install the "texlive-latex-base" package to
get a (minimal) LaTeX installation.

I have never user KPackage and therefore can't help you with it and it
seems as if it has been deprecated. Could you please issue the following
commands in order to figure out if your packaging system is configured

    # cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    # apt-cache policy
    # apt-cache policy texlive-latex-base

Unless there is an error in your configuration you should be able to
install LaTeX with the following command:

    # aptitude install texlive-latex-base

Note that there are a bunch of frontends for Debian's packaging system,
most notably synaptic and aptitude-gtk (not in Lenny).
