It doesn't sound like you are be running a recent CHIRP daily build
(and by recent I mean within the last year). About a year ago is when
the VA-170 driver module last was edited and it has probably available
much longer than that.

Don't use the Software Manager to install CHIRP. You do not want to be
running a CHIRP v0.1.x, v0.2.x or v0.3.x build. You must manually
install a daily build using the instructions on the "Running CHIRP
Under Linux" page.


Although the packages required are a little different, I just did this
last week to install CHIRP on the Raspbian Jessie OS running on my
Raspberry Pi 2.
