    1) Have you got Synaptic? If you have, open Synaptic from a Terminal with the command: gksudo synaptic . Put in your password. Synaptic will open. Do a search for deluge. When you find it, tick the box and "Apply"

    2) Otherwise, connect to the internet, open a Terminal and issue the command: sudo apt-get install deluge

    Yes, dpkg doesn't resolve dependencies. Use apt-get or aptitude from the command line or install synaptic package manager for a GUI.

    The Debian GNU/Linux FAQ - The Debian package management tools

    FYI, the package name appears to be deluge-torrent, so it's (as root)
    Code:
    apt-get install deluge-torrent
    Other FYI, debian doesn't setup sudo by default last time I installed it. In your screenshot, you're already logged in as root and sudo is superfluous.
