You can install the 2.1.3 version explicitly with:

  sudo apt-get install libgdal-dev=2.1.3+dfsg-1~xenial2

But this will fail when the version is updated in the PPA.

Is the travis environment using Ubuntu xenial, and not an older LTS like 
trusty or precise? It's probably trusty since that ships with GDAL 

For those older LTS releases the UbuntuGIS packages haven't been updated 
yet. Depending on manpower and motivation we may be able to updated the 
trusty packages in the near future.

Ideally the travis environment is upgraded to xenial for which the best 
support is available and the default packages in Ubuntu itself are much 
more current.

Kind Regards,
