Likely this is due to using a version of Movable Type released more than four years ago with a very new version of Perl that is default on Ubuntu 14.04. You should upgrade to the latest Movable Type. You could also try to downgrade the Perl version to 5.14 or 5.12.

After the upgrade should be the latest version. At your suggestion I downgraded the Perl version to 5.14 and the error was gone
