Looks like you are missing libotr2. Broken upgrade?

Sorry, I was looking at Debian by mistake. It's a missing dependency in the package.

Seems a rebuild is all that's needed to link against libotr2 (and thus depend on it).

Rebuilding worked for me, thanks.

Here's the process I used, in case anyone else needs it:

# Ensure you have source repositories activated
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get build-dep bitlbee-plugin-otr
sudo apt-get source --compile bitlbee-plugin-otr
sudo /etc/init.d/bitlbee stop
dpkg -i bitlbee_3.0.1-1_amd64.deb bitlbee-plugin-otr_3.0.1-1_amd64.deb
sudo /etc/init.d/bitlbee start
