I would try the following...

# remove PPAs

sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:gambas-team/gambas-daily
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:gambas-team/gambas3

# Purge all of gambas3

sudo apt-get purge --fix-broken gambas3*

# update apt and reinstall

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gambas3*

# you might want to run apt-get update before using purge command
