I'd try this:
dpkg -i --force-all
dpkg --configure -a
apt-get dist-upgrade

The first command forces tdelibs to unpack over the old tdelibs, which
should solve your conflict problems.  I've run into this on a few machines
myself but it was always due to me upgrading from R14 preliminary to R14
final, not from 3.5.13.x to R14.
