Skype made a major blunder in their latest (1.2.0.17) debian packages.
I've been trying to convince them to change their packages without luck.

You have a couple of options:

Install one of the two tar.bz2 versions, one of which can be obtained
here:

or 
Install this old version (1.2.0.11) using dpkg:
