The Debian packages haven't been updated in a while. The problem is that Trusty doesn't come with Node.js 4, which is now required for Mathoid. The preferred way is to install it via NPM after having Node.js 4. Node.js 4 can be obtained via NVM.

@mobrovac what's your feeling here: Update the apt repo or remove support for the packages?

The Services team has no bandwidth to support packaging at this time, especially for platforms we no longer support (Trusty). @Physikerwelt would you be willing to support a Debian version of the package?

looks like this was about xenial rather than trusty
