Ubuntu – How to fix “Skype can’t connect”


I am using Ubuntu 14.04 and had skype 4.3 installed, worked without any issues. Today, just like that, I always get the error

Skype can't connect

when I try to log in. I can log in to the skype account on skype.com, I removed the folder .Skype and I re-installed skype multiple times, using apt-get and by directly installing the 'deb' file from skype.com But nothing is working. I just can't log in.

And idea what else I can try?

Don't mess with any of your files.

The issue is on skypes end currently, if it's urgent you can try to connect via the website version of skype at http://web.skype.com
