Hi Ken,
see this page

Stretch is not officially supported yet, although TDE works well in Stretch.
You did everything correct, but last command should be
sudo aptitude install tde-trinity

If this doesn't work, it means some packages are now broken and we will need to fix them.
Hopefully I can come back and do some work very soon (I also use Stretch, so if some packages are broken I will
have to work on them whenever I want to update).

Please let us know how it goes.
