Using Synaptic to Uninstall a program

I have SimplyMEPIS 6.0 - Beta 4 and I want to remove the SKYPE file, using Synaptic and replace it with the latest SKYPE Beta file.

If someone could point me to the instruction for removing a file with Synaptic, I would really appreciate it.

Normally, a beta version won't show up for package managers like synaptic, smart or yum unless you are using development/testing repo lists. In that case, the package manager should get the latest version when you do an update. For example: synaptic update or yum update ....
Otherwise, you need to get the package and install it yourself.
