    If you are not sure that the message is a legitimate one from Skype itself, then don't click/tap on it.

    Go to the skype site and see if there are updates or newer versions for your device/OS, and download it from there.

    Check your skype settings. Go tools>options> advanced and from here you can check either it is in auto mode or not.
