Latest plasma 5.5 push for kubuntu wily breaks calibre

Bug Description

Calibre is not anymore installable on system after the latest 5.5 push. Please look into the dependency issues. Calibre, as shipped with ubuntu seems to require qtbase5-abi-5-4-2, but the latest plasma push seems to impose qtbase-abi-5-5-1.

Had the same problem yesterday when upgrading in that apt-get wanted to remove calibre and calibre-bin from Nate Muench's PPA at, but today I was able to install them again.

Perhaps a reboot would fix it?

In my report, I was mentioning the calibre package distributed with the "official" ubuntu. If there is a PPA with a working calibre package, this is good news.
