I need to install pavucontrol by hand, because my apt does not work. How can I install it by hand? I just need to get it for skype sound but my apt does not work.

You can find pavucontrol on launchpad. You can install from deb (using software center) or the tar.gz file (manual; click to download).

But I would advice fixing apt.
