Have you actually read the error message? It explains everything.
kdebase-runtime-dbg depends on kdelibs5-dbg but kdelibs5-dbg is not
installed. All you have to do is to install kdelibs5-dbg. Note that
dpkg does not automatically resolve dependencies, if that's what you
were expecting. You need a higher level tool for that, like apt-get
# aptitude install kdelibs5-dbg
# dpkg -i kdebase-runtime-dbg_4.4.1-0rc2_amd64.deb
Note that it is not necessary to install those -dbg packages if you do
not intend to provide a backtrace of a crash to upstream developers.
