- Installing Skype on Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit 12 answers
I have had repeated issues with installing skype, and have attempted installing other dependencies. However, this one issue persists. This same error message has been repeated over the past three installation trials.
########@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install skype Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: skype : Depends: skype-bin but it is not installable E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
