This question already has an answer here:
I looked around a bit for some solutions first, but they didn't seem to work due to another issue.
first of all, i freshly installed ubuntu 13.10 yesterday, did my updates and upgrades etc.
so this is a fairly new/fresh system.
when i try to install skype I get this error:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: skype : Depends: skype-bin E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
when I add the canonical partners using this line:
apt-add-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"
and update, I get this:
W: Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/fr.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_saucy_main_binary-i386_Packages Hash Sum mismatch E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
apt-get -f install didn't do anything.
How can I fix this?
