I recently updated skype to the new build on my Droid Charge (Froyo). It seemed buggy, so I uninstalled it, then when I tried to reinstall, it gave me an error stating "insufficient space available" - but I have nearly 1 gig left on my internal storage. Any ideas?
There is a bit of information about how to fix this problem. Skype itself is refusing to acknowledge that it's its problem.
Basically, when you uninstall Skype for Android it leaves behind a directory. When you try to reinstall Skype the presence of that directory causes this error.
Yo need to be able to "root" the phone or device, log in using a terminal emulator and then to manually remove the offending directory.
I managed to do it after a bit of mucking about.
However, the app is still buggier than a wheat farm during a locust plague. Force Closes, constantly disconnecting/reconnecting, and video calling doesn't work.
This forum won't let me post a URL, presumably to counter spam. Do a search for the following text:
Please note the Skype staffer who made a comment about it in January, 6 months ago. And to date, nothing has been done about it.
I get that error with every update to skype. I don't know why it is caused, but what I do know is that if you uninstall skype and then install the new version, no such error occurs. it works for me, and I am very sorry it doesn't work for you. perhaps restarting the phone after uninstalling skype would help?
I have the same problem.
I know that you can try root the android and delete the directory data/data/...skype... (i dont remember the name of the arqchive)
