the pkgbase variable is used to group a set of **source packages** under
a single PKGBUILD.
Btw an AUR package (here I refer to pkgname and pkgbase as well) name
must never clash with another package included in the official repositories.

There's no point to use a pkgbase for a single package, which in turn is
named in a different way.
Just remove the pkgbase='quodlibet' to your PKGBUILD.

The same applies to krita package.
Why do you use the caligra pkgbase if you only build the krita package?
Your PKGBUILD doesn't build a couple of packages but only krita. Then
simply remove the pkgbase='caligra' and use only pkgname='krita' instead.
