That's a benign error - it means that for some reason, records
the Skin table have been removed (either because they were not
committed or because the were deleted) but the previous versions
were not removed. This can happen if the server shuts down
unexpectedly even if forced writes are enabled. Other than
occupying space, orphaned back versions do no harm. Gfix should
get rid of them.
