Been trying to install Skype on Ubuntu 13.10 (3.11.0-15-generic), but with no success. Have tried:

$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 $ sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner" $ sudo apt-get update -y $ 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 E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

So then I try:

$ sudo apt-get install skype-bin

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-bin:i386 : Depends: libqtwebkit4:i386 (>= 2.2~2011week36) but it is not going to be installed Depends: libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Have tried through aptitude, but the same result. Any suggestions? Thanks.
