This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

It seems that the ppa you added that is available longer or added outdated PPA. you have to type following command in terminal to install skype.

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ quantal partner' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/canonical_partner.list"
