Filezilla installation confusion


I'm trying to install Filezilla on a Ubuntu 8.04 system.
What i get is a bit confusing.
Could someone decipher what is going wrong here please?
Here is the terminal output from the initial command until the end of the proces.
Code:
sudo apt-get install filezilla
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
  filezilla: Depends: filezilla-common (= 3.0.7.1-0ubuntu3) but 3.1.6-1~getdeb1 is to be installed
E: Broken packages
I just smiled and nodded politely. Can anyone tell me what it's on about?

Thanks for the reply Megworld
Still no joy however.
I ran the update and then tried again:
