I am using what is reported as the latest version of SKYPE - version 8.30.0.50  on LL3.6 64 bit.   Did my upgrade about a week or so ago.   No red exclamation mark on SKYPE dashboard "Notifications" to say that a new update is available.  .  Last updated LL et al 19/09/18 19:30.  Have now temporarily stopped upgrading LL via synaptic  until the SKYPE issue is resolved.  SKYPE working OK.  Use it regularly.

"FYI please use sudo apt-get dist-upgrade in LL and not sudo apt-get upgrade on the cli.

For now, I suggest commenting out the Skype repo until they get their s#@t together. :)

Code: [Select]
sudo sed -i -e 's/^/#/' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/skype-stable.list
"r

Thanks to both of you. This solved my System Update re: Skype dilemma. I appreciate your help.  8)

Looks to be fixed now, have tested. You can now restore your Skype Repo if you had disabled it via my earlier instructions:

Code: [Select]
sudo sed -i 's/#//' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/skype-stable.list

I see that a new update of skype is available again.  After the problems with a previous version, has anyone  just updated to a version NEWER than  Skype Version 8.32.0.44?   I can't afford  to have problems with SKYPE, so therefore hesitant to update until  it is given the "all clear".  Thanks.
