It means you're missing some necessary dependencies...lib32stdc++, ia32-libs, etc. You'll need to install these from the Ubuntu software center and then retry the installation.

If you run

ldd /path/to/skype |grep found

you can see what you are missing. Correct output from that command is *no* output. You will be missing 32 bit versions of those libraries, whereas you may have 64 bit ones.
