Whether this could be helpful or not I have no idea, but I just ran aptitude 
upgrade on a 14.0.4 on Stretch installation last upgraded 22 May. it reported 
30 "not upgraded", 279 upgraded, 6 new, 1 removed. No errors were noted on 
completion, and neither tdegraphics-trinity nor tde-core-trinity are 
currently installed. Note that I do not install tde-trinity. Instead, I 
install trinity-tdm and tdebase-trinity, plus several other trinity-* I 
routinely use, and don't bloat the installation with gobs of never to be used 
apps and libs.

It seems Michelle is likely right in saying something on the mirrors is 
broken, but I am able to open a TDE session that seems normally functional. 
So, you might want to try starting with a more compact installation like I 
do, then add whatever more it takes to suit you personally.
