That's the unstable development version of OpenSSL and should only
be used for integration testing by O/S distribution and dependent
package maintainers.  It seems you have an "out of tree" version
of OpenSSL installed somewhere on your PATH.

Report the verbatim output of the commands below (executed in the
same shell in the below order):

    echo $PATH
    openssl version -a
    path=$(type -p openssl); echo $path
    pkg=$(dpkg -S $path | egrep ": $path" | sed 's/:.*//'); echo $pkg
    dpkg -l "$pkg" | grep '^i'

Use an LTS version of Ubuntu, and don't install "out of tree" versions
of OpenSSL on your PATH.
