I faced the same issue when I upgraded last night. Here's what I did to get it working again:

1. Completely removed spotify with an 'apt-get remove spotify-client'

2. Re-added the repository in software sources.

3. Ran apt-get update (which took forever. Am I the only one facing this issue in 14.04?)

4. Installed Spotify again with 'apt-get install spotify-client'

 

Hope that helps !

Thanks for your help, Skanda,
I have tried your solution, but after the first command I get the following response:

 

E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

Ah. Did you try running the commands as root using sudo?

You should post a warning at the start of the thread to read the entire thread first.  Re-installing worked for me.

Me neither I didn't get that part, but I just did the first step to uninstall Spotify and then followed these instructions: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2013/01/how-to-install-spotify-in-ubuntu-12-04-12-10 The instructions are for the older LTS version, but worked perfectly for me since it installs the updates too. I hope you get it working again! 🙂
