We can uninstall Skype and redownload a fresh version. Go to this website and download the App Cleaner app --> https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/

Open App Cleaner and load Skype in it. This will load Skype and all its filed in App Cleaner. Delete them. Then download and install latest version of Skype from here --> https://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-computer/

Open Skype and sign in to your account. Does it allow you to call now ?
