I am using Ubuntu Desktop 12.04(64 bit).
I have downloaded skype from the official website and opened the deb package from the terminal(
sudo dpkg -i skype-ubuntu-precise_126.96.36.199-1_i386.deb) but install did not finish successfully.
Now whatever I try to install I get the following error:
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: skype:i386 : Depends: libssl1.0.0:i386 but it is not going to be installed Conflicts: skype-bin Conflicts: skype-bin:i386 but 188.8.131.52.0-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 is to be installed skype-bin:i386 : Breaks: skype:i386 (< 184.108.40.206.0-0ubuntu0.12.04.1) but 220.127.116.11-1 is to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
Of course I tried running apt-get -f install, but when I do, I get the following output:
... After this operation, 36.7 MB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue [Y/n]? y dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of skype:i386: skype:i386 depends on libssl1.0.0. skype-bin:i386 (18.104.22.168.0-0ubuntu0.12.04.1) breaks skype (<< 22.214.171.124.0-0ubuntu0.12.04.1) and is installed.

You can also have a look at the output from
dpkg --list here.
I have also tried running
sudo apt-get remove skype-bin, but again it fails with similar error.
What should I do to fix this problem?
