TDE on freshly installed Debian 7.3.0 issue...

Hello all,

I would like to install Trinity Desktop Environment release
Wheezy [Debian 7.0] (v3.5.13.2) on freshly installed
Debian 7.3.0 (by means of 3 DVD installation discs).
Architecture is amd64 with 64GB RAM.
Followed verbatim Debian Trinity Repository Installation Instructions.
I'm stuck at the very beginning with following error message:

root@deb:~# apt-get install desktop-base-trinity kde-trinity
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 kde-trinity : Depends: kde-core-trinity (>= 5:47) but it is not going
to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I found some interesting posts on the list in regards of similar issue:
But, my question is whether it got solved finally?

At this stage of system I would not tamper unnecessarily,
basically just to avoid new install.

Could you please provide some guidance, how to overcome presented issue?

Best regards.
