my windows 8 skype app update wont download

Skype is pre installed with windows 8 on my new pc. I went to use Skype app and it said I need to update first. I went to store app and clicked updates and then selected only Skype update and it said preparing for 5mins and then finally said downloading but its been 15mins now and the progress bar hasn't moved at all.
