Where did you get the deb file from?

gnome-calendar_3.20.2-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb probably is the version for Ubuntu 16.10 which is currently in development.

It seems that all versions of gnome-calendar in the Ubuntu repositories depend on libecal-1.2-19, which does not exist on Ubuntu 14.04 trusty (and consequently gnome-calendar does not exist in the Ubuntu repositories for trusty).

You would have to find either a version of gnome-calendar that does not depend on libecal-1.2-19 (but e.g. on libecal-1.2-16 which is available for trusty), or you have to find a backport of libecal-1.2-19 to trusty.

Or you update your system to Ubuntu 16.04 xenial. Then all dependencies would be met.

Can you help with this problem?
