It looks like your couchdb settings may not have been setup correctly. You should make sure the following settings in your localsettings point to the right database:

####### Couch Config ######
COUCH_HTTPS = False # recommended production value is True if enabling https
COUCH_PASSWORD = '********'
COUCH_DATABASE_NAME = 'commcarehq' has pretty solid installation instructions that should work on Ubuntu 12.04
