On a Mac:  I was notified of SKYPE update availability and so attempted to update but encountered a snafu and error message window indicating that "Please ensure you’re authorized to perform software updates on this Mac.".  In most software, if one needs authorization, a special window comes up to request it.  Does SKYPE not know how to implemement this solution? (Seems impossible to me.)  Anyway, I aslo logged in as the Administrator for the computer and attempted to update that way, but encountered the same problem.   

 

Any suggestions?
