That's up to you. I think the actual problem you reported is due to the
old version of package.el(c) in your site-lisp, so all you have to do to
make it go away is delete it. Specifically, it's older than


and so can't handle things like "Version: 8.6+git" as contained in
lisp/mh-e/mh-e.el in current Emacs master. If you don't delete it,
you'll get the same problem with 25.1 and any packages with similar
version numbers.
