1. Enable Canonical Partners repository.

The partner repositories offer access to proprietary and closed-source software and are not enabled by default, e.g., adobe-flashplugin, google-cloud-sdk, and skype.

To add the repository, launch Software & Updates and then go to Other Software tab. Check first two boxes as shown below:

2. Refresh package cache and install Skype

For graphical way, install Synaptic Package Manager in Software Center. Then launch the software to refresh your system repositories, search for and install skype.

For those who prefer Linux commands, launch terminal from the Unity Dash, App Launcher, or via Ctrl+Alt+T shortcut key. When it opens, run below commands one by one:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install skype

Finally, launch the client from the Dash/Launcher and Enjoy!
