I suspect that the absent version number is causing the issue. Since
it was AFAIK solved time ago, this may indicate that the packaged
version in the PPA is outdated.

Do you find a file
on your disk? What does it contain? I want to know the r (revision)
number to understand of which age the Ubuntu built is.

No, should not be an issue if properly packaged (they can happily live
together on a same machine).
