In a box the hard drives of which had never been used, I installed a
basic stretch, leaving me at the end only with the command line for
any further packages installations.

I the did the following: all these commands were run as root.

Since I wanted to install TDE only -- no other DEs -- I ran command
"apt-get x-window-system".  When that was done I was able to run
successfully startx.

I added to /etc/sources.list the following two lines:

deb stretch deps-r14 main-r14
deb-src stretch deps-r14 main-r14

I then ran successfully:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-key A04BE668

and then "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade" successfully.

When next I ran "apt-get install tde-trinity"
 the following was returned.

Some packages could not be installed.  This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not been created or been
move out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
tde-trinity: Depends: tde-core-trinity (>= 4:14.0.0~) but it is not
going to be installed.

tde-trinity: Depends: tdegraphics-trinity (>= 4:14.0.0~) but it is not
going to be installed.
E: Unable to correct problems; you have broken packages.

Running "aptitude install tde-trinity returns a similar message.

I would appreciate it greatly if someone could tell me what all the
foregoing means and what to do now to install the TDE.
