Because annoyingly after any update of SwiftKey, you always have to open it from your app drawer and reselect it as the keyboard.
I assume you have root and deleted the stock keyboard?

Did you remove the default google keyboard? After updating swiftkey, you need to again set it as default in "language and input" settings!

If you have indeed deleted the Google keyboard, you can adb push the apk, fix permissions and reboot!
