In Skype notifications I have the following :
'A new update is available. Install the latest version via your package manager, then restart Skype'.
I have done the following:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install skypeforlinux
And the notification still persists.
I decided to completely remove Skype and install it again:
sudo apt-get autoremove --purge skypeforlinux
I reinstalled Skype like so:
sudo apt install ./skypeforlinux-64.deb
The notification still persists.
I removed Skype again and downloaded it via the Ubuntu Software Store GUI, I am still getting the notification.
I downloaded it directly from the Skype Web page, the 'Skype for Linux DEB' package, and I still get the same notification.
I deleted cache for good measure also.
My system states:
skypeforlinux is already the newest version (188.8.131.52) 0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 16 not to upgrade.
However, I am still getting a notification within the application that an update is available. I have quit and restarted Skype numerous times. As well as carried out a system reboot several times.
Please could someone explain to me why this notification persists, and how I can get rid of it?
