Following the instructions (https://www.hipchat.com/downloads#linux-install) leads to a failure on Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial, to be released on April 21st) when trying to update the repo data. The reasons seems to be an update of apt's security policy which now requires a SHA2 key to consider hashes secure. Currently, the HipChat repo only supports md5 sums and SHA1 hashes.
sudo apt-get update fails with the following message:
E: Failed to fetch https://atlassian.artifactoryonline.com/atlassian/hipchat-apt-client/dists/xenial/Release No Hash entry in Release file /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/atlassian.artifactoryonline.com_atlassian_hipchat-apt-client_dists_xenial_Release which is considered strong enough for security purposes
There are MD5 sums and SHA1 hashes given, SHA2 is missing (Dump of

Hey Fabian - nice catch. That sha1 deprecation is going to play hell with everyone.
such an awesome error message...

Anyway, you can get around this problem with an (unsecure, know WTF you are doing workaround) by just downloading the deb file by hand and installing it using dpkg:
NOTE: before executing any of these command line statements you'll want to be sure your system is updated, has the dependencies installed, and that you know what you are doing.
ah, nevermind, looks like Atlassian has released a new client already
nope, nothing new available. the above works, however. Just make sure you get the right architecture for your desktop (32bit/64bit)
thanks for describing the alternative route! Mine is to just use https://web.hipchat.com for the moment.
While it might be a more complicated task to automate builds with included SHA256 hashes, it might be a quick fix to just call sha256sum for all files and manually add this data for the current build. At least the path of installing HipChat with a chance of possibly broken update options seems a better one than not installing HipChat at all.
