This installs 3.16.09 fine. Reverting to the "stable" source and running an upgrade successfully gets Koha up to the latest version (

Hacky, but it works!

Hi Barry,

I too was receiving this error. Very frustrating. I installed

  echo deb http://debian.koha-community.org/koha oldstable main  to the  /etc/apt/sources.list.d koha.list  file

instead of

  echo deb http://debian.koha-community.org/koha stable main  [I made sure that I deleted this entry from the /etc/apt/sources.list.d koha.list  file.]

This did the trick for me.

I am running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit from a VPS.

I seem to be getting this error on a fresh install now?

Turns out that everyone who tested it tested fresh installs, but it only broke on upgrading.

Have a good ANZAC weekend, where appropriate :)
