Since Skype has started to deliver the new Linux 5.1 (64 bit) version as its stable release, I believe the Nux Dextop repo should stop distributing the old 4.3 (32 bit) version.

Alternatively, just drop the skype.i586 and point EL7 users to the Skype official repository:

Thank you.

Thanks for letting me know. I have retired the old Skype package.

For those who still need it, it's somewhere here:
