I note that in the instructions for installing TDE R14.0.8 say to run as root the following:
apt-get update
aptitude install TDE-trinity
I am confused by the fact that two different installation applications are used here, apt get and aptitude. It was always my understanding that those two apps should not be mixed because they are not compatible.  I have always used apt for all the desktops I ever had including for installing TDE and never had any problem.
Is aptitude better for TDE than apt? I would prefer to use apt because that is what I plan to use for installing Debian Buster on a couple of desktops in the near future.
