Bug Description

When I try to synchronize decks with AnkiWeb using the version of Anki from the repository, the message pops up saying:

> Syncing failed:
> Please upgrade to the latest version of Anki.

The version from the official web site (2.0.28) syncronizes well.

Anything happening here?

Otherwise the website says you have to download and compile their app from source. Which most users dont' know how to do

Same here in Feb 2017, after upgrade to ubuntu 17.10, the anki sync doesn't work using the synaptic package manager version. However the version anki-2.0.47 from the anki website works well. I just uninstalled from the ubuntu package manager and installed the one from the website instead.

Please keep the repo software uptodate!
