Bug Description

I upgraded from Kubuntu 10.04 to 12.04 (64 bit). I did have a PPA enabled for an updated version of KDE.

(Actually, Kubuntu)

KDE/Kubuntu PPA:
deb lucid main

After the upgrade, I am getting errors about the "Alarm Template" (and a couple other Alarm...) from Akonadi. If I quit the program that is in my system-tray, the three messages come back only once in the form of error dialogs. If I do not do this, I am constantly alerted about these errors.

For better or worse, I deleted the three things from the Akonadi config, but it makes no difference on the alerts.

What should I do to fix this?

Otherwise, the upgrade seems to have gone quite well.

Here is one of the dialogs:

Title: Error - KAlarm
Message: Failed to convert old configuration for calendar "Alarm Templates". Please use Import Alarms to lad its alarms into a new or existing calendar.

Location: file:///home/ME/.kde/share/apps/kalarm/template.ics

I receive the same for "Active Alarms", and "Archived Alarms".

I tried starting kontact (kmail2) and the migration of my old content failed. "Migration to KMail 2 failed. In case you want to try again, run 'kmail-migrator --interactive' manually.

Okay... but why did it fail? What do I need to fix? And where do I need to look to get a log file of use in determining that?
