I often file that under "Travis has a screw loose for sticking with Ubuntu 12.04".

It's a fantastic service, but it has its warts. "Word" is that at some point
they'll switch to a new release "at some point".  For R, we are getting by
via eg R builds off the CRAN / PPA repos administered by Michael, but for
some other libraries it shows its age. One can code around it if one knows
how to prepare a matching .deb (cf [1] which I need to document/blog about).
