How can I solve this problem?
You do not say what you are trying to install it on (eg. Sarge, Etch) but the libc6 package is not really one that you can just download and use dpkg -i with. It is pretty much THE
main package that everything else depends upon as such when it gets upgraded there are numerous other packages that have to have been built using it installed at the same time. One solution is to dist-upgrade to unstable as that is where you got the package from so that is what you need to be running to use it.
