comment Upgraded to 13.10 now clock settings are all disabled and clock does not display
while that might have solved your specific issue, i tried that procedure and got no "not found"'s. is that because i ran that AFTER "fixing" the issue with the accepted answer?

comment How to install Skype 4.3?
i had downloaded the latest deb from the site itself. apparently, COMPLETELY deleting the previous skype install was a necessary step. i did multiple things here and there until eventually it worked. anyway, thanks UPVOTED :)

comment How to install Skype 4.3?
@WarriorIng64, did you install this way or simply copy paste? software center does not find skype even after including canonical partners. installing from microsoft's site (skype) does not work (MICROSOFT NOT WORKING PROPERLY? TYPICAL!!!!) for 14.04. even after removing all traces of skype, the deb package reinstalls 4.2

@jakeGould you actually took the time to reformat "my" code. does that mean that you tested it and it worked for you?

comment Problem installing skype on ubuntu 12.10 : Error in sound packages
the problem is that you updated your ubuntu. DO NOT accept all updates from ubuntu 12.04 or 12.10 and you will be OK. u must understand: skype belongs to microsoft now. they are putting out buggy versions so that you badmouth ubuntu and linux.

comment How do I deal with “unauthenticated sources” errors in the Software Center?
this works BUT depending on the country where you are, you MIIGHT get a "SOMETHING WICKED HAPPENED" while updating, indicating that there might be a SOFTWARE SOURCES problem with ubuntu software center (or synaptics). in that case, change from your country's server to main server (ubuntu software center > edit tab > software sources)
