I trying to do apt-get install, but nomatter what I do (sudo apt-get -f install, sudo apt-get purge sabnzbdplus etc) it just complains about this unmet dependency.

Screenshot of terminal output

Edit:

mads@madsserver:~$ sudo apt-get remove sabnzbdplus-theme-smpl sabnzbdplus

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 sabnzbdplus-theme-classic : Depends: sabnzbdplus (= 0.7.6-0ubuntu1~jcfp1~precise) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

The key part of the error message is:

sabnzbdplus depends on nabnzdbplus-theme-plush (= 0.7.6-0ubuntu1~jcfp1-precise); however:
Version of sabnzbdplus-theme-plush on system is 0.7.7-0ubuntu1~jcfp1-precise.

The package sabnzbdplus depends on the package nabnzdbplus-theme-plush with the specific version number 0.7.6-0ubuntu1~jcfp1-precise. However, you already have that package installed, just a different version (0.7.7-0ubuntu1~jcfp1-precise).

The solution is to uninstall sabnzdbplus-theme-plush and similar packages, and try to install sabnzbdplus again from scratch:

sudo apt-get remove nabnzdbplus-theme-plush sabnzbdplus-theme-smpl sabnzbdplus-theme-classic sabnzbdplus
sudo apt-get install sabnzdbplus

When I try to remove them I jsut get these 2 new ones (See edit) that it depends on, and I cant remove them as they seem to be circular dependent –  Mech0z Dec 29 '12 at 22:11
