Bug report #15307
QGis installation fails on ubuntu 14.04

Until yesterday my whole qgis and python-qgis worked fine with version 2.14 under Ubuntu 14.04.
After a simple `sudo apt-get update` and `sudo apt-get upgrade` qgis failed to update...
Several attempts to reinstall it with different versions failed.
Current error message (for version 2.14.3) goes like this:
qgis-providers (2.14.3+dfsg-2~trusty1) is configured ...
/usr/lib/qgis/crssync: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libgdal.so.20: undefined symbol: GEOSDelaunayTriangulation_r
And for version 2.16.0 it is:
/usr/lib/qgis/crssync: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libqgis_core.so.2.16.0: undefined symbol: GEOSNearestPoints_r
Tried to reinstall all gdal libraries - not sure if I got all?!
I also posted this bug to stackoverflow for any help: http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/202674/qgis-update-failed
Thanks for help or any suggestions!

Just wanted to second this issue.
I had qgis 2.16 installed and working with ubuntugis-unstable on trusty. After an update I had a conflict with python-mpltoolkits.basemap concerning the version of libgeos. I tried uninstalling every qdal and qgis related packages and perform a clean reinstall and now qgis-providers fails to install correctly with the same errors. I tied using the ubuntugis-unstable packages as well as the debian packages.
I am fairly certain that I managed to uninstall every conflicting package before trying to install. But maybe one slipped by.
Thanks for helping!

- % Done changed from 0 to 100
- Target version changed from Version 2.16 to Version 2.18
- Status changed from Open to Closed
Since QGIS 2.16 is now replaced by QGIS 2.18, I think the issue can be closed for now.
The error is not reproducible on QGIS 2.18.0 for me.
Reopen if necessary.
