Just proceed. Keep in mind, "debian 9" matches "devuan ascii", so please adjust your sources accordingly.

MATE will be gone after the next reboot, so you'll most likely end at a real console. Do a "aptitude dist-upgrade" after the next reboot and install TDE. Use "apt-show-version" to figure out which packages are a leftover from debian and need to be replaced with devuan versions. If you run into problems with consolekit, just drop a line.

For reference, I've added my sources.list

Nik
