Yesterday i try to login on my Skype account and it shows skype can’t connect error. I try many times but everytime it shows same error. I am using Skype 4.1 version on my Ubuntu 12.04 OS for long time. So first i thought may be i enter wrong credential that’s the reason, it’s not working. Then i reset my skype password and again try to login. The same error appears again.
When i search this problem on Google, I found Skype has released version 4.3 . So older versions of Skype will stop working.

1. First i uninstall my Skype 4.1 version from my system. Command to Uninstall Skype through terminal.
