Some basic things to try here:

1. reboot your computer after an upgrade of Qt
2. do a whole new checkout of Scribus to erase any memory that cmake 
will find

If you're using a distro with a repository, I would generally advise 
against upgrading things like Qt outside of the repository, unless you 
have some understanding of ldconfig and how to undo such an upgrade.

It could  be worse. You might be using Windows, in which case if you 
screw it up you have to totally reinstall Windows (with all of that 
ugliness) to fix the problem.
