First one is bug in PHP packaging (fixed in Debian, but not in Ubuntu 16.04). Second one is bug in Ubuntu patch (, which did not properly adjust dependencies for PHP 7.0.

Thank you for reporting this bug. In Comment #3, did you have the order reversed? php-mbstring is a dependency problem (resolved in Bug # 1577482, which is pending upload for SRU), while gettext is an issue in the PHP7.0 packaging (as reference in Bug # 1569128)?
