I feel like my interface is missing the ability to add sky.
Although I have easily applied sky in another file before, no matter what I do in this file, the sky is black.
What went wrong?

You cant add sky nodes to a lamp, you have to create a new World "material" and add nodes to it's setup, not the Sun lamp.
In the Properties Window go to the world tab (Fourth tab with a blue globe) and add a new one there if there isn't one already.
Then in the Node editor Window switch to World node type in bottom header, second button with the same blue globe icon.
