    Have you tried first?
    Then try again.

    Seems like Skype has a Deb file on their website you could try. I just put Skype on a Debian distro that way.

    You need to install i386 architecture first. All this is on the Ubuntu support page. You'll get it faster there it's already posted.

    what is in your sources.list in /etc/apt ? (I think it is in /etc/apt). It seems like your system is messed up...

    The command line way to read your sources list is to open a Terminal and use the command: gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
