As far as I know, there is no deb command. What is it supposed to do?

did not read the post before mine:

Code: Select all
deb http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/debian/ stable non-free

"deb" is not a command with three arguments (http* stable non-free),
but a line which needs to be put in your
Code: Select all
/etc/apt/sources.list
Say
Code: Select all
echo "deb http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/debian/ stable non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update

as root (or with sudo, which you seem to use)
You seem to use Ubuntu, so better read here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Skype
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repos ... positories

Before you add repositories you will want to understand the very basics of package-management. Else you are completely lost in case things go south.
Code: Select all
apt-get install debian-reference

in case it is available in Ubuntu (i assume it is). Else
http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debia ... 02.en.html
And the Ubuntu wiki is a good resource too, usually written in a step-by-step manner, and it contains the errors one might run into (and the solutions for well known errors)

I am not sure how exactly things are done in Ubuntu. The above is what i would do, and it might be wrong for Ubuntu (at minimum the keyring for the repository should be missing).
Take care and good luck.

If you want to get Skype either on Ubuntu or Debian then go and dowload the binary deb for your architecture and appropriate OS. On Ubuntu you can even install it from the repos, that is what I would have done if I were an Ubuntu user.

Code: Select all
sudo echo "deb http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/debian/ stable non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

will not work. Instead, use
Code: Select all
sudo bash -c echo "deb http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/debian/ stable non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
