- Hmm... I couldn't remember how I installed Julia, so I decided to try with the package manager... I found it, uninstalled it, then re-installed it and now I seem to have been downgraded to 0.4.5 but now there is no error... So I'm not sure what happened. I looked at my /etc/apt/sources.list file and I don't see any Julia repository. So I figure that I must have installed Julia using a PPA, so I found the PPA:
I had this problem installing Julia on 'Bash on Ubuntu' in Windows 10 after copy/pasting the whole set of lines in one go according to the Ubuntu instructions in http://julialang.org/downloads/platform.html. When I went to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/, I noticed that julia-deps was still missing, so I reran that add-apt-repository line, at which point I was prompted for confirmation. This I had not seen the first time, probably because of the two following two lines that were still coming in the paste job. After answering yes, julia-deps was successfully added, and after another update/upgrade cycle, starting Julia no longer produced this error. You guys may want to check whether this is your problem as well.

as of sep 10 this remains the quickest solution

I just had the same issue under Ubuntu 14 and a fresh Julia 0.4.6 install.
It seems that Ubuntu updated my gmp library to version 6.1.0 during the last round of updates and that does not seem to agree with Julia (Even after reinstalling it from the PPA after uninstalling it)
To solve it: I simply downgraded gmp back to 5.1.3 using: `sudo apt-get install libgmp10=2:5.1.3+dfsg-1ubuntu1`
and finding the proper version name using: `apt-cache showpkg libgmp10`
And that works fine.
I also did: `sudo apt-mark hold libgmp10` to keep it from automatically updating next time around.
There's likely a better fix than that though, as I'm no Linux guru.
