Yes, sorry for the German, I could not switch to English (worked before by

Not quite. I am watching this now since the change to kde5. The main problem 
are the dependencies between kde4 and kde5 libs. As kde5 wants to deinstall 
many kde4-libs, it will also deinstall all non-kde apps, which rely on kde4-

This is a bad situation and should be fixed soon. 

At the moment I adviced all my friends, not to do any upgrades.
