a real upgrade mess

From: dep <dep@...>

upgrade on my notebook machine went relatively uneventfully, so i 
thought it safe to upgrade desktop machine. and boke everything to 
the extent that i do not have x on the desktop machine at all.

am running ubuntu-12.04LTS

from a terminal, having added the specified lines to my sources.list 
and commented out the old tde lines, i did:

sudo apt-get update
sudo aptutide upgrade

due to server congestion i had to run the latter several times. it 
then specified a problem, to be solved by removal of libcal2b-trinity 
and libqt-perl.

the installation blows up in a fashion too long to list here -- i'd 
have to type it in character by characer, and it includes "25 not 
fully installed or removed" when i went back at it with sudo apt-get 
dist-upgrade. that command blows up with:

dpkg: error 
processing /var/cache/apt/archives/tdelibs-data-trinity_4%3a14.0.0-r1231-0ubuntu12.04.0+pr138_all.deb 
trying to 
overwrite '/opt/trinity/share/icons/crystalsvg/16x16/devices/cdrom_unmount_encrypt.png', 
which is also in package kdebase-kio-plugins-trinity 
dpkg-deb (subprocess): data was killed by signal (Broken pipe)
dpkg-deb (subprocess): error: subprocess <decompress> returned error 
exit status 2
Errors were encountered while 
processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/tdelibs-data-trinity_4%3a14.0.0-r1231-0ubuntu12.04.0+pr138_all.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

not real sure how to proceed. ideas?
