TDE has it's own sudo package. It has kdesudo-trinity and sudo-trinity. The latter is the replacement. Since it's a different package from a different vendor, apt-get doesn't recognize these as being the same.

*If you don't get any other suggestions from the more experienced*, I'd suggest that you make a backup copy of the /etc/sudoers file (this tells sudo who can do what with sudo, including your default user), set a password for root password as apt-get suggests, then follow through with the installation. Once it finishes, drop the sudoers file back into place to make sure your user can still use sudo (use "su -" without quotes to become root to restore it if needed).
