Please don't post here (or on any other AUR packages) about out of date versions. Use the "Flag package out-of-date" link at the top. Also, BEFORE flagging this package out of date please check that it has not already been updated here to the new version.

Note that AUR package skypeforlinux-stable-bin is the version Microsoft release as their "stable" version. AUR package skypeforlinux-preview-bin is the version Microsoft release as their preview version and is always a later version than the stable version. PLEASE DO NOT FLAG THE STABLE VERSION OUT OF DATE WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING THIS!

There was a problem only on the first computer I tried to upgrade skype. Probably somewhere in the filesystem the privileges are not right. As I said, the package was created by running makepkg with root privileges. Yes, it's not right way, but I do not have time to explore the problem. The other Arch computers had no problem with the update.

@pdontcheff Good but did you solve your issue? How?

pdontcheff commented on 2019-05-04 14:55

Thanks for help!

@pdontcheff, what do you mean by "but with root privileges"? All those commands should be run as your normal user. As I said previously, completely clear out your cache/build area and run makepkg/yay again.

@pdontcheff First update your Arch system. Then, in working directory, 'makepkg -sicC', it worked for me now. Installed successfully.

@bulletmark, Arch+MATE. I tried with yay, yaourt, makepkg - the same mistake. I have successfully built it, but with root privileges. Sorry for my bad english.

@pdontcheff, what distro+DE are you running and how are you trying to install it (AUR helper? etc) I am using Arch+GNOME and it installs and runs fine for me. Perhaps your AUR cache/build area is contaminated. Clear it out and try again.

Just install gnome-keyring and you're good to go.

@zozi56 is there no way making it work with KDE's? Installing gnome-keyring won't mess up with KDE? thanks
