It might be related to the ubuntu upgrade from 12.04 to 16.04 and
changes in the PPA.
I do know know.

The path "/usr/local" indicates that you are running an Octave that you
compiled yourself and installed in /usr/local. You may have also
installed Octave from the Ubuntu repositories or a PPA, which is
installed in /usr.

I guess that you compiled Octave against an old version of Qscintilla,
then upgraded your system, and are still trying to run the self-compiled
Octave. Try deleting it from /usr/local entirely.

Did you try the command sudo ldconfig to update your library path?

Might be worth a try.

Good Luck,
