I encountered a weird thing with Skype on Lubuntu 18.04.
I installed it but it did not have the best performance on my low-spec PC so I rather use it on my newer PC and I uninstalled Skype from my Lubuntu 18.04.
To my surprise I noticed that when I started the Software Updater, the Software Updater kept reaching to the Skype servers for updates.
I therefore used the
sudo apt-get purge skypeforlinux command in the terminal, the terminal said that Skype has been already uninstalled but there were 800Mb of “unnecessary” drivers&files that can be removed. If I remember correctly the command the terminal proposed to remove those 800Mb worth of files was
sudo apt-get autoremove but I am not sure whether this was the command, I am sure though that I typed in the correct command it displayed and finally those 800Mb of Skype-related files were deleted.
Later on I noticed that the Software Updater still keeps reaching out to Skype, you can notice it in the following video from 00:25 to 1:19 and from 1:55 to 2:17. : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XRgZ5qkSy7gHy89_wFHmgpuAFeU8cL6G/view
So I am curious why the Software Updater still keeps reaching to Skype servers even though Skype has been uninstalled, and related files have been purged from my computer? Is it some kind of Microsoft malware or just a configuration error in Lubuntu 18.04?
