My bad. I wasn't really using a clean installation at all.
Childish mistake!
Once I sent the last email I double checked everything and saw my problem.
I installed the PPA package and it seemed to work. More on this later.

Correct, indeed.

My goal is to install a stable, production-ready release.
If I understood correctly, v1.5 is not final yet. So I chose v1.4.
I have also installed PostgreSQL v9.6.1: I hope this is OK.

I did a new installation on a "really fresh"(tm) Ubuntu Server 16.04.1.
It worked. Almost.

As soon as I pointed my browser to
I got the "Database Management Console" where I asked to create a new
database (with the credentials defined at the package installation stage).
I chose my country code (it) and a subsequent account chart (cc2424).
Then I chose to load "demo_with_images" and, finally, I entered the
details for the ledgersmb username with "full permissions".
Then ... BANG!
I got an error page saying:

25P02:ERROR: current transaction is aborted, commands ignored until
end of transaction block at /usr/share/ledgersmb/LedgerSMB.pm line
dbversion: 1.4.34-dev, company:

If I go back to setup.pl I can see the database is there, I can ask to
rebuild it, but cannot login as (I think) I am missing the company
