You need to install the two .deb files at the same time.

>From the terminal you can do something like:
sudo dpkg -i grisbi_1.2.1-1_amd64.deb grisbi-common_1.2.1-1_all.deb

Maybe it is also possible to do that from GDebi.

Another option is to:
- remove the current (old) grisbi package
- update grisbi-common
- install the new grisbi
