Hey Ken,

It looks like you might have some outdated information in your local cache,
or perhaps you have multiple PPAs bringing in conflicting information? I
haven't used the "released" PPA, as it was not up to date until Irina
recently moved my packages from "testing" over there - but I can say for a
fact that we do multiple builds a day with clean trusty installs where this
works just fine.

Having said that, there was discussion of an upcoming qpid-cpp release at
which point I committed to making a new release on the "testing" branch,
and generally clean up the PPAs as a whole.

There was a message sometime last month up here about someone having issues
with the PPA packages as well, resulting from conflicting cached PPA
information so you might look there? I wish I could be more help, but
frankly the debian packages are best-effort at this point.

Matt
