I experienced same issue .
Downgrade works .
yum downgrade skypeforlinux-184.108.40.206-1.x86_64
LSB Version: :core-4.1-amd64:core-4.1-noarch
Distributor ID: CentOS
Description: CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810 (Core)
I have the same issue. Any (stable / unstable) release after skypeforlinux-220.127.116.11-1.x86_64 fails to run as expected.
If I remember well, I've noticed something like a library issue (that some process related to skypeforlinux failed to start or so...) at one of the first pre-releases after 18.104.22.168-1 (probably managed to find something in some log or so... don't remember details though). With the most recent releases, no indication of what went wrong.
The problem is that even if launched through terminal, initial process is terminated instantly (and, command prompt is back), without any error being reported. Don't have an idea about how to make skype processes to be more verbose or to log issues somewhere. Anyone has an idea about that?
Apparently the new version has been compiled with a newer version of GLIBC (GLIBC_2.18) and CentOS 7 is at GLIBC_2.17.
Source of this info:
I can confirm that versions after skypeforlinux-22.214.171.124-1.x86_64 does not work any more.
Since new version appeared, I had to apply "yum downgrade skypeforlinux" twice to reach skypeforlinux-126.96.36.199-1.x86_64.
Even Skype System Requirements do not show CentOS/RHEL as supported anymore: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/fa10328/what-are-the-system-requirements-for-skype
As @gorano wrote, problem seams to be with newer GLIBC version and Microsoft does not care to support RHEL any more. There is possibility it is connected with Microsofts new ties with Ubuntu or recent stop of support for both Skype Desktop and Skype for Web on Windows XP platform that happened last month.
In any case, I propose for this bug to be marked unfixable,
and to propose that everyone using skype-stable repo apply "yum-config-manager --disable skype-stable" to dissable further hassle.
Maybe Nux can move one copy of skypeforlinux rpm to his repository in case skypeforlinux-188.8.131.52-1.x86_64 is removed from official repo.
|skypeforlinux.x86_64 0:184.108.40.206-1 does not solve the problem we have to downgrade twice to skypeforlinux.x86_64 0:220.127.116.11-1|
|Version 18.104.22.168 fixes this.|
" Version 22.214.171.124 fixes this. "
I can confirm this, Skype 126.96.36.199 loads and works.
It is quite unexpected but nice development.
solved by skypeforlinux-188.8.131.52-1.x86_64
|Skypeforlinux is a proprietary package supplied by Microsoft. They made a change to their package to require a newer version of glibc than is supplied by CentOS 7 and that is impossible to satisfy (attempting to update glibc will result in a dead system). They've subsequently re-updated the package to require the correct glibc 2.17 version. This is not a CentOS problem.|
