Skips to a higher gear on the rear? To a different chainring on the front?

Chain rings can wear, too, this leads to the above mentioned skipping (like worn chain, worn cassette).

after repairs the skipping to a different gear stopped.still skips once in a while when starting from a stop.

Skipping / slipping chain: sign of either wrong setup (readjust... again) or wear on cassette / chainrings
Autoshifting / skipping from one gear to the other: bad setup, autoshifting friction shifters, gummed up cables and several more

I recently bent my chain on a mis-shift to the large chainring. The result was that the chain would skip every couple of crank rotations - so you may have a bent chain link.
