This question already has an answer here:

I cannot find a Skype install package that has been verified as working on Ubuntu 14.04. I used standard Skype from their website, and then read that I should use Skype from UBUNTU software center.

There is no OBVIOUS Skype to choose, and I clicked on a few items in the Ubuntu language that I don't as yet understand, so logically I am now asking for guidance in getting Skype installed into Ubuntu 14.04.

Install Skype On Ubuntu

See the instructions at the following link - here

Excerpt below:

Since Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx), Skype is part of the Canonical partner repository. To install Skype add the Canonical Partner Repository. You can do this by running the command

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"

Then install Skype via the Software-Center or via the Terminal.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install skype

It is highly recommended to use the package provided in the Canonical partner repository, not the one distributed from the skype website, as the skype website currently points users to the wrong package for 64-bit systems of Ubuntu 11.10 and above.
