Try add ppa kubuntu-ppa/backports and apt-get install kubuntu-desktop... Looks like it have prebuid arm64 and armhf packages. But,  better if you build all the necessary packages for yourself.

Install "tasksel" and add the needed de through there - Kubuntu desktop for KDE, Lubuntu desktop for LXDE and so on. Tasksel will install all dependencies and will fill your installation with a bunch of packages. Just to be warned - KDE and Gnome are too heavy for any present ARM device, so using this will only be a torture. There is a reason Amrbian to use XFCE. LXDE is suitable too.
