Ubuntu Jaunty: New version of calibre won't start

Hello all,

My problem is this: I've been running calibre without issue on my Jaunty box for about a month now, but this morning I started it up and got a message that 0.6.15 was available.

So...

Code:
adouma@desktop:~$ sudo python -c "import urllib2; exec urllib2.urlopen('http://status.calibre-ebook.com/linux_installer').read(); main()"
Enter the installation directory for calibre [/opt]: 
Will download and install calibre-0.6.15-i686.tar.bz2
                                                                                    Downloading calibre-0.6.15-i686.tar.bz2

Run "calibre" to start calibre
I'm pretty in the dark about output like that, but I've included it in case anyone wants to look at it. Then I tried running calibre from the Apps menu - nothing happens. Running it in a terminal produced this:

Code:
adouma@desktop:~$ calibre

    from _ctypes import Union, Structure, Array
ImportError: libffi.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Yikes. I tried removing my calibre directory altogether and rerunning everything - no change. A quick google found nothing to do with both 'libffi.so.4' and calibre, so I'm here!

Uh, help please?

Fixed build uploaded. Re-download and you should be fine.

Edit: Alas, spoke too soon. I re-downloaded but it just did the same thing again.

What's the best way to completely remove calibre? Maybe a fresh install will work better.
