Yes, it prevents deleting things but does not tell you how to prevent it...

Probably right. Unfortunately the "strictly free" option of Debian is one 
thing I don't always follow

Anyway, as far, my results are as follow:

Trying to correct the situation with aptitude failed (probably my fault) and 
resulted in the removal of many things (but not TDE itself). I restored my 
backup of end of may on my system partition and updated: worked. So I must 
have screwed things up some time this month.

Same try in Devuan resulted in TDE removal. After that it was impossible to 
reinstall it (unsatisfied dependancies). So there too I restored but the 
update problems remain. I'll have to look further, but as Devuan went from 
RC2 to 1.0, I don't know if you can just "update" from the first to the 
second. No production system anyway so I probably better install new and 
clean.

Thanks for all the help,

Thierry
