Since it's not close enough to a 3.5.14 release, it may or may not work.
Purge ALL of the TDE packages (don't just remove them); this is done with "apt-get remove (somepackage) --purge". That'll get rid of all of the old config files that could interfere.
Next, make sure that the directory /opt/trinity/ is completely removed.
Finally, install the nightly build.
