First, Indranil is correct. Why are you not following the latest Ubuntu 

Second, you probably cut the two blank lines at the bottom, and you were 
supposed to MOVE not COPY.
http://xml.org/sax/features/namespaces = 1

http://xml.org/sax/features/namespaces = 1

http://xml.org/sax/features/namespaces = 1
http://xml.org/sax/features/external-general-entities = 1
http://xml.org/sax/features/external-parameter-entities = 1

http://xml.org/sax/features/namespaces = 1

And third, you didn't read the current, partially-tested instructions for 
tarballs which says:
Unfortunately, because not all packages for the XML SAX Parser are packaged 
in the same location, there could be more than one ParserDetails.ini file. 
They are easily found, however, using the following command:

    $ sudo find / -name "ParserDetails.ini"

Another installer noted that they had to change the 
/usr/local/share/perl/5.12.4/XML/SAX/ParserDetails.ini file. This is why 
this find command is very important.
Only one example will be provided. A similar editing process is required on 
all of the files found. All of the resulting files should be kept identical.

This is particularly true if you used CPAN, which makes things harder to 
maintain on a forward basis. I would recommend exporting your data to a MARC 
file. Doing a packages installation, and then importing your data.

And no, I'm not linking to the tarball instructions, because that is not the 
recommended way to do installation since Koha version 3.4.0 -- despite the 
instructions being out of date for Ubuntu until 3.6.x. I understand that the 
INSTALL.ubuntu.12.04 file is tarball based. Read the lucid and/or Debian 
instructions, they are packages based, though slightly out dated. We are 
cleaning up the installation instructions so this sort of confusion won't 
happen on a forward basis.
