Yoy need to report this to Microsoft. CentOS uses glibc 2.17 and libstdc++-4.8.5 and these will not change during the 10 year lifespan of CentOS 7. Microsoft have changed skypeforlinux to require a newer version and it will no longer run. There is nothing that CentOS can do to fix this. This is a problem that only Microsoft can fix.

game over, ask MS to fix their release process, nothing CentOS can do about it.
