No, this is an issue with newer versions of Ubuntu (and possibly other
distributions), which ship a newer JPEG library than what we build
against.   Fortunately it is easy to obtain the correct library.  Try
running this command:

sudo apt-get install libjpeg62

Let me know if that doesn't fix the problem.
