The bug seems to be caused by "universe" not being enabled. The upgrader found kubuntu-netbook-default-settings installed and guessed that the metapackage is kubuntu-netbook but that package is now in universe as is kubuntu-desktop.

It seems like upgrades with kubuntu-desktop will fail in the same way on systems without universe:
kubuntu-netbook | 1.254 | precise | all
kubuntu-netbook | 1.263 | quantal/universe | all

So ideally the release upgrader should either warn or enable universe. In some twisted way its actually correct to fail as the user wants main only and this would bring him to a universe system.
