I'm not an ubuntu expert but when trying to install skype though terminal I receive this error message:

stardust@stardust:~$ sudo apt-get install skype
[sudo] password for stardust: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package skype

How can I fix this problem and finally install skype on my laptop?

Thank you for your help!

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