Does your sound work on other applications (music, videos, etc.)?
BTW, I've never known Skype to update itself automatically. My copies ok Skype certainly don't do that. You must have a luxury edition.

Skype is run by Microsoft. I think it is highly unlikely they would send you an email telling you that the "latest edition" is available for linux. Which version of the skype package did you download?
