Package File Invalid

When I go to download the updated Skype app from the Android Market, I receive a message that reads "PACKAGE FILE INVALID".  Is there a fix for this?

I must have tried installing over 10 times today and I keep getting that error. Now I wish I had kept my upside down video. Now I don't have skype at all. OMG. Can someone get back to us. :sad:

Re: Package File Invalid

Try restarting the device completely and then retrying the installation.

Keep your Skype up to date

Re: Package File Invalid

I tried shutting down my samsung galaxy S and restarting... still getting the same message. I should have kept the old version. The one time I need it to work while my husband is away it doesnt work :sad:
