Which exactly was this message, and which apt-get command were you
running and you saw this message?
My advice is to use aptitude which makes a better dependency resolving.

Anyway, about your problem, you don't have of course to re-install
debian, just to
aptitude install <packages>
those packages which were uninstalled. You can find those packages by
examining: /var/log/dpkg.log
