Essentially, all of the packages for Ubuntu and Kubuntu are are the same,
except the Gnome (Ubuntu) and KDE (kubuntu) specific ones.

Gnome and KDE are updated and refreshed on there own separate timelines.

It's all one package archive. Ubuntu Desktop and Kubuntu are just
different selections of packages from the same archive. So if you
install Kubuntu you will have some different packages installed
initially and exactly the same packages available for install as if
you had installed Ubuntu Desktop.
