Make sure you are using the Xenial repository:


wget -q http://ubuntu.bluecherrydvr.com/key/bluecherry.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/bluecherry-unstable-xenial.list http://unstable.bluecherrydvr.com/sources.list.d/bluecherry-xenial.list

Please post questions or comments to the unstable / bleeding edge forum (community.bluecherrydvr.com).  It is not possible to downgrade from the unstable release back to the stable release without completely removing and reinstalling the software (including the database).
