Installing packages from the Ubuntu software center using snap have some issues.

"snap", a new cross-OS package manager. Snap will be much better than APT one day, but right now it's in the beginning stages and experiencing growing pains.

I removed skype from the software center and I downloaded the .deb file from Official Skype website.

Then I installed it using dpkg which solved the problem.
