I tested your way and the upgrade goes smooth. Nevertheless after the
process is completed a lot of dummy packages are still installed. Using
the following procedure gets rid of those dummy packages and leaves a
clean upgrade.

1) apt-get update
2) aptitude dist-upgrade
3) aptitude install tde-trinity   -> then choose to resolve the conflict
by removing kde-trinity and kde-core-trinity

Can you test on your machines as well and let me know? If confirmed, I
will update the installation instructions.
