First make sure that the sddm is installed on your system. Most likely it is already but just in case run:

$ sudo apt install sddm

If the sddm is already installed than try to reconfigure it in order to make sddm the default display manager:

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure sddm

This will ask you to choose your default display manager. Select sddm:

Confirm that sddm is selected as default:

$ cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager
/usr/bin/sddm

The easiest now is to simply reboot your Ubuntu system and make sure that you have selected Plasma desktop as a default desktop environment:

Hope this helps…
