Hi Doc,

this is because several icons have been moved from the kdf-trinity package 
to tdebase-data-trinity. In dependencies, this situation is treated for 
update from R14.0.5 (and earlier) to R14.0.6. Therefore, in the case of 
updates between R14.0.6, a conflict may occur. I suppose the kdf-trinity 
update was successful on your side. Therefore, the subsequent update of 
the tdebase-data-trinity should already be successful.
