Skype - User not found...

I thought all my Christmases had come at once today, as I finally got sound out of Skype. I was much looking forward to calling my brother in the U.K. but when I tried to do so, Skype returned an error message "User Not Found". So I checked by searching for him as a new Skype contact and compared the answer with what I had. They were identical.

Then checked all my Skype contacts and in every case I got the same error message. Uninstalled Skype and deleted the hidden file .Skype and then installed Skype from the Software Manager. The error is still there.

Have searched ihe www and this Forum for an answer, without success.

Has anyone on the Forum come across this problem, please and can give me some clue how to overcome the problem?
There's so much bad in the best of us
And so much good in the worst of us
That it ill behoves any one of us
To judge even the least of us.
