I tried updating digikam to 4.14 on Ubuntu 16.04 this morning and ran
into problems with installing through apt.  I tried to to an upgrade
after adding in your PPA and that failed with an apt error.  I then
removed your PPA, updated and then apt removed digikam, removing 4.12.
I then added your PPA back in and still couldn't install digikam 4.14,
some of the errors:
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
So I'm wondering if this is related to the issue of the geolocation?
I personally aren't using this capability, but I'm still learning my
way around digikam and for the most part happy to wait on a solution
before upgrading to 4.14 or 5.
