Problem installing Skype update

When attempting to install an update of Skype the following 2 error messages were seen:

 

1) A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file C:\programData\Skype\{AA59DDE4-B672-4621-A016-4C248204957}\SkypeSetup_5.5.0.113.msi

 

and then

 

2) Installing Skype failed; code 1603

    A fatal error occurred during installation

 

What is the problem and how do I solve it ?

 

Best regards
