As per wiki/ReportingBugs, please specify which version you are running at both ends. This looks like an outdated version on the server at least.

Your server version is completely out of date, and full of security issues. Details here: wiki/Packaging/DistributionPackages.
Don't use the packages from Ubuntu, or if you do, report the bugs there (and nothing will happen since they have never applied a single fix in 4 years).
