[KPhotoAlbum] upgrading KPhotoAlbum on Kubuntu Trusty

Removing KPhotoAlbum completely should not affect the index database. I
have done purge myself often enough with no problems. Nevertheless you
should keep a backup around, just in case. I personally keep the index in a
git repository, but we also have a backup script that can be used for this
purpose:

/usr/bin/kpa-backup.sh

Running it without parameters gives a help text describing the options...

You might want to run also "apt-get clean" to get rid of the downloaded deb
packages. Just to make sure they are all updated.
