  • OK so four reviewers weren't aware that w3af-console is in the Ubuntu repositories and so they started downvoting the question and railroading it closed. However now that this information is in the public domain, this question still being downvoted. Back off and close a snake oil question instead. – karel Sep 10 '17 at 5:10

w3af-console is in the default Ubuntu repositories for Ubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu 16.04. The reason why you got these errors is that you installed a w3af-console package from somewhere else instead of installing the w3af-console package from the default Ubuntu repositories. So uninstall the existing w3af-console package and then reinstall it properly using the following command:

sudo apt-get install w3af-console
