When I try to install Skype on Ubuntu 13.04 I get the following error:

error cannot install 'libasound2:i386' from ubuntu software center

If I try through terminal I get:

the following packages have unmet dependencies
libasound2:i386 : Depends: libc6:i386(>= 2.16) but it is not going to be installed. 

I've tried in terminal

sudo apt-get install libasound2-plugings:i386

it too has unmet dependencies

i know a simpler solution. go to software and updates and tick the repository canonical patners software. then update the package list. you can now install skype from software center.
