    Hi proggrammer, please try to add a archive cannonical repository or try to download Skype from official site: http://www.skype.com/intl/en/get-sky...omputer/linux/
    Code:
    $ sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/$(lsb_release -sc) partner"

    Hi, please show your /etc/apt/sources.list file. Something on line 61 is wrong. One more thing; also show lsb_release -sc command result. Did you tried to download Skype from official website?

    Wait! Try once again to run add-apt-repository command, but with space after archive.canonical.com/, so

    Code:
    $ sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/spacebar_here $(lsb_release -sc) partner" 
    $ sudo apt-get update  
    $ sudo apt-get install skype
    An example for Ubuntu 12.04
    Code:
    deb http://en.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main restricted

    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    and post output here to see what is wrong in it.
    There is no greater religion than a truth.
