OS: Ubuntu 12.04

Problem: When I try to login to Skype, it says ¨cannot connect to server¨ - i understand that Skype no longer connects to server when the Skype version is less than 4.3, so my problem is as follows:

Skype Version
When I ask terminal for Skype version, it says the Skype version I have is 4.3
But when I open the Skype application (the only one available) it says it is version 4.0

I have removed and reinstalled it but it just produces the same problem.
How do I solve this problem? - Thanks!


Solution: Problem solved after installing software updates and then reinstalling Skype v4.3

  • There isn´t meant to be a link. I was just explaining how I solved it in case others had the same problem. No need to rate it down! – user6988001 Oct 7 '14 at 10:38
  • Not me, you could explain more in detail about what you did. I think this would be helpful to other users. – P.-H. Lin Oct 7 '14 at 10:40
