Cant Install skype

hey guys i have downloaded the package skype for ubuntu but there were errors, i tried to install on the terminal and i get this error

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
skype: Depends: libasound2 (> 1.0.12) but 1.0.10-2ubuntu4 is to be installed
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.6-6) but 2.3.6-0ubuntu20.5 is to be installed
Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1-12) but 1:4.0.3-1ubuntu5 is to be installed
Depends: libqt4-core (>= 4.2.1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libqt4-gui (>= 4.2.1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 4.1.1-12) but 4.0.3-1ubuntu5 is to be installed

E: Broken packages
but all of those are already installed.

Your best bet is to install Skype via the package manager APT/Synaptic etc.

That would take care of all the dependencies for you.

Another good method to obtain skype work is download the static package.
Yes is much big but it's works on every distro linux without problem on dependencies.
