Skype is not in the regular Ubuntu repositories. You need to add the Medibuntu repository to install skype through synaptic or apt.
You will be able to install Skype on a 64 bit OS, which, as mentioned, you appear to be running. Add the medibuntu repo and installing through synaptic will download the necessary 32 bit libraries.
