Same here. Lumia 620.

Have similar problem. After last WP update on Lumia 625 now can't install Skype. It gives an error without number. Rough translation: "there is a problem with installing this app...". I tried rebooting the phone, change the region but it didn't help. There's plenty of free space on the device.

What is the reason  and how can go arround this?

One possible problem is that the app can no longer be installed on the SD card... are you definitely tryting to install it on the device itself..?

But I think there's no option to install it to other place than phone itself.

Anyway it's set in memory settings that all new apps should install to phone.

Can not activate Skype on my Lumia 530 moble phone

 My problem got resolved by doing factory reset one more time. But this time I didn't restore backup data. Skype and any other app now install fine.
