  1. Didn’t work, only manage to get this error:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “/usr/bin/update-notifier-kde”, line 28, in
    from PyKDE4.kdecore import *
    RuntimeError: the sip module supports API v3.0 to v3.7 but the PyKDE4.kdecore module requires API v3.8

    Tried Synaptic upgrade after that and did the job.
