Updating Skype

I am running Peppermint 6 on my Acer Aspire one.
Today I have been advised that the Skype 4.3 is out of date from today.
I was told to run Download Skype for mobile & desktop | Skype
Did so and tried 64.DEP and 64.REM
but I do not know what to do next.
Can anyone help, please ?

I’m guessing you’re running 32bit Peppermint ?

What’s the output from:

uname -a

Linux kevin-AOA110 3.16.0-77-generic #99~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 28 19:18:41 UTC 2016 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux

Sorry - yes 32 bit

Well you’re out of luck then, the new Skype is 64bit ONLY I’m afraid.

That said, the new Skype Client for Linux is only a wrapper for their web client … so if you’re running Peppermint you could always just make an ICE SSB that points to
https://login.skype.com/login
it gives you everything the new Skype Client for Linux app does except the tray icons
