When I run:
  sudo apt-get update
and then
  sudo aptitude install tde-trinity
to install TDE on my 64-bit stretch system, some of the things I see are
sufficiently concerning that I don't want to go ahead and allow the
installation without further guidance and confirmation that I'm not about to
break something important.

The output is:


[HN:apt] sudo aptitude install tde-trinity
The following NEW packages will be installed:
<lots of new packages>
but then:
The following packages will be REMOVED:

 desktop-base-trinity : Conflicts: desktop-base but 9.0.2 is installed
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

     Remove the following packages:
1)     desktop-base [9.0.2 (now, stable)]

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?] q



1. Looking at the packages that will be removed, will I still be able to run
virtualbox if virtualbox-dkms is removed? [I think that the answer is yes, but
I would like some assurance from someone who is more certain than am I.]

2. And then what about desktop-base? The version that is currently installed
is from the official debian stable repository, so I don't think that I should
be removing it. So what should I do about this conflict?
