Is this an error message?

Code: Select all

rob@robs-desktop-pc ~ $ sudo apt-get -f install

Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Or just a statement that I have a couple of old kernels still available?

You follow the trail: try to install libasound2-plugins:i386 and see what that returns and install the packages mentioned there, etc., etc.
Start with:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install libasound2-plugins:i386

That held broken packages error again.
Should I now try installimg libavutil54:i386 or is there a better way to handle this?

I wonder if you are using deb-multimedia. Could you post the output of

inxi -r

Please, remove one of these two lines:

Code: Select all

           deb http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib non-free
           deb http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib non-free
and run:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -f install
That probably won't fix Skype, but at least you'll have a correct sources.list file.

After that you will have to manually check (install) each package that seems un-installable. It is a lot of work but I don't know what else you could do.

I've got Skype installed in Mint, my backup distro.
I'll leave the Skype install on SolydK64 for some time in the future when a complete reinstall is necessary.
Thanks.
