I am not sure what version of Orgmode this corresponds to...What does
M-x org-version RET say.

If Debian picks from Emacs-24.1 bzr repo then the Orgmode there is
atleast 2 months old.

If they are picking up from GNU ELPA, http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/ then
it is likely to be fairly recent.

Footnote export in ODT was known to be broken[1] with the following is

|   (setq org-footnote-section nil)

May I know what value do you use one your end?

Could you please try out the earlier suggestions?

Providing a complete Org file (with footnotes) is necessary so that
there is no confusion on what we are looking at.

With a footnotes added, I was able to export just fine with the version
of Org in the git repo.

To debug such issues see FAQ and Org manual.
- http://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#debugging-org-odt
- (info "(org) Validating OpenDocument XML")

You most likely need OpenDocument schema files available for validation
to proceed. This you can confirm by checking the value of:

C-h v org-export-odt-schema-dir

or visiting the directory

C-h v org-odt-data-dir

ODF schema files are available from the git repo. See link below. Make
sure you download the files in raw form.


Let me know how things go.
