You are byte-compiling packages under emacs22, which is not part of any
current Debian distribution and hasn't been since... lenny?

Seems to me that the upgrade from 'lenny' to 'squeeze' to 'wheezy' to
'jessie' should uninstall emacs22 along the way and update it to

Otherwise, I will add checks for emacs22 and skip installation for that

It shows markdown-mode failing...  I could only skip markdown-mode for
