    What release are you using? It shows up in standard repos here. Oct 12, 2014 at 12:54

Go to the following website: http://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-linux/

Select the version of ubuntu you are using or select the latest previous version e.g. as you are using 14.04, select 12.04. When the pop up appears for downloading make sure "Open with Ubuntu Software Center" is selected. Then when downloading is finished you will be able to install it.

You can also install direct from Ubuntu Software Center by searching Skype and then clicking on the installing button from there.

Good Luck. If you still face problem don't hesitate to ask.
