You may need temporary to disable AVG when installing the new Skype update or configure this Antivirus to allow Skype.


Alternatively, you can use this method.


Download, but don’t run this installer for the latest version.


Using the procedure described here,


extract the Skype.exe file from the SkypeSetup_6.9.0.106.msi file and replace your currently installed Skype.exe with this new Skype.exe file. You will be now running the Skype version.
