This is what Skype displays when I try to connect.

I've tried reinstalling, but still no fix. When I sign in on my mobile phone it works, so I know it's an issue affecting only the desktop version.

Skype is not available for Ubuntu 14.04+ – fatboytall1 Aug 2 '14 at 14:48
@fatboytall1: Yes it is. What made you think otherwise? – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Aug 2 '14 at 15:19
I meant the latest version of skype which you are referring. – fatboytall1 Aug 2 '14 at 16:21
It is, I have it. – Tim Aug 2 '14 at 18:26
@fatboytall1: If you say a little more than "is not available" we might be able to help you. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Aug 2 '14 at 18:36
