I have a further query. Since I have double-checked the sources.list and
find that the backports are commented out, I am still getting a GPG error on
kubuntu.org breezy release stating that the signature cannot be verified.
Consequently, I am submitting my [Breezy] sources.list for inspection to see
if it is b0rked in any way:

Perhaps another pair of eyes... And I am also wondering about the 7th line up
from the bottom comment. Thanks. :-)
