Zcashd doesn't run on Ubuntu 14.04

Following the instructions for Ubuntu, zcashd doesn't work on Ubuntu 14.04, only on 16.04. It's probably worth adding this to the documentation somewhere.

The error one gets on 14.04 is:
zcashd: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgomp.so.1: version `GOMP_4.0' not found (required by zcashd)

It works fine on 14.04

Have you

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get update

And installed all the dependencies needed?

This is from following the instructions at https://github.com/zcash/zcash/wiki/Debian-binary-packages

I had no worries building from source.

It doesn't mention to do sudo apt-get upgrade, but I'll try that next time I'm on a 14 machine, thx for the tip.

I am using 14.04 too. Works fine.

Did you install gcc 4.9 (as it requires libgomp >= 4.9)?
