For the record, gdebi is basically obsolete these days.  Its main
feature ("install a local .deb plus all of its dependencies") has
been incorporated into apt-get and apt.

apt install ./some-local-file.deb

Don't forget the leading ./ characters.  They are required so that apt
knows this is a pathname rather than a packagename.  You're also allowed
to specify a pathname with leading / or leading ../ characters.
