It was necessary to run updatedb. It seems that Smart needed to
own database before KPackage could run. It is now loaded, listing the

what that means?
Well, I tried KPackage for a few minutes lately. I found it to be extremely
buggy to the point of being entirely unusable. I strongly recommend not
using it. KPackageKit is the way to go. I think KPackage is likely to go
away upstream soon, or at least move to extragear or even playground. It
doesn't look actively maintained and it's just horribly buggy.
