You might want to run 'apt -get -f install ' to correct them :
The following packages have unmet dependencies :
libc -dev - bin : Depends: libc6 ( > 2.15) but 2.13-38 + deb7u1 is to be installed
libc6 -dev : Depends: libc6 ( = 2.15-0ubuntu10 ) + deb7u1 but 2.13-38 is to be installed
tshark : Depends: libc6 ( > = 2.15) but 2.13-38 + deb7u1 is to be installed
Depends: wireshark -common ( = 1.10.2-1 ) but 1.10.2-1 ~ bpo70 + 1 is to be installed
E: unmet dependencies . Try 'apt -get -f install ' with no packages (or specify a solution ) .

what should i do ?

when i try to install another program the error forces me to run "apt-get -f install" but when i run it i get the error presented up there. :(

any solutions to cancel the stuff that is blocking me to install another stuff?

How up to date are your packages?

It would seem you're installing something that requires a newer version than what's acceptable to some other package. You need to figure out what the package is that demands that 2.13-38+deb7u1 and see if you can either upgrade or remove it.
