I get this message when I try to sign in. I used skype-4.2.0.11.pet for installation. The OS is Tahr-Pup 6.0.2 (service pack 6.0.3).

It makes no difference. Both are skype 4.2 and both don't connect.

Yes, after update, I see skype 4.3 in quickpet. But whatever I do, skype 4.2 opens. Should I uninstall it in some way before install the new one?

But how to uninstall? Right click on sfs doesn't get an uninstall choice. Remove sfs at boot-manager doesn't get the job done.

If you go to Setup>Puppy Package Manager you can uninstall from there.
