You can install it from the Ubuntu Software Center. That should take care of dependencies.

The error message suggests you are attempting to mix and match packages from different Ubuntu releases.

Can you please copy & paste the output of:

Code:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Your software sources /etc/apt/sources.list is missing (at minimum) the "main" repo to install libc6 so that you can satisfy the dependencies for synaptic.

You may find this helpful:

http://repogen.simplylinux.ch/

After you repair /etc/apt/sources.list then you refresh with:

Code:
sudo apt-get update
and you should be OK.
