7 qt4 and qt5 are slotted and intended to be installed together. Packages
8 are updated at different rates and you will reach a point where some
9 packages haven't be updated for qt4 while others have dropped it
10 entirely. The only way to completely avoid this situation is to have at
11 most one package using qt installed.
