There is a discuss on this topic here.

First remove the existing libcap installation:

sudo dpkg -r libcap2:amd64

Download older libcap:

wget ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb

Install libcap:

sudo dpkg -i libcap2_2.17-2ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb

Download libnspr4 library:

wget ntu3_amd64.deb

Install libnspr:

sudo dpkg -i libnspr4_4.8.9-1ubuntu3_amd64.deb

Edit the installAMS and replace exit_no_libcap with exit_no_libcap-dev and exit_wrong_libcap with exit_wrong_libcap-dev.

I get a scrollbar below the link, so I can select the full URL. – Justin Hourigan Dec 4 '13 at 9:59
No I mean in the wget's, at the end reads libcap2_2.17-2 ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb and libnspr4_4.8.9-1ubu ntu3_amd64.deb – Braiam Dec 4 '13 at 14:05
