Go to a terminal and see what this command gives you:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

If it responds that something is broken and dpkg needs to be run, try

sudo dpkg --configure -a

By the way this may or may not have anything to do with TDE. ;-)  Ubuntu
can get stuck in a bad state somewhat easily when upgrading.
