Since Dec, 05 2014, project neon is no more available as a PPA, unfortunately.


Utopic is shipped with Plasma 4. If you want Plasma 5 there is a KDE Next PPA (which will provide updated KDE too), but it'll replace the current installed KDE


sudo apt-add-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/next
sudo apt update
sudo apt install kubuntu-plasma5-desktop
sudo apt full-upgrade

And finally, after save all your work:

sudo reboot


Kubuntu CI: the replacement for Project Neon - blogs.kde.org
Frameworks/Binary Packages - KDE Community Wiki
