There is no problem for me; I use Jessie 8.7.1 amd64.
I just download, extract, and run as normal. Maybe you should do a distribution upgrade (apt-get dist-updrade) to get all the libraries updated. I used to experience the same kind of errors when running new updated programs, and in many of the cases it's because I hadn't upgrade my OS distribution then.
