I am guessing that you need a newer version than is in the Ubuntu universe
repository (2.1.6-2.1).

If you need to stay on the bleeding edge with the latest versions as they
come out, you should add a new repository to your list for just this
purpose.  Pinning can be used so that you only get gphoto stuff from that

If you just want to test the latest version, the better way is to web to the
repository that has the .deb file and download it manually.  Then you can
use "sudo dpkg -i nameofdeb.deb" to install it.
