If your problem looks like the thing discussed in the following link, 


I was also suprised when I first time saw these messages. 

You can take a look at this Pull Request. 


I do not think it is something related to Ubuntu 16.04. It is that OPM decided that to output all the keywords are not used in the simulation through the above PR. 

Nothing is changed in the simulation side though. 

Hope it helps your quesiton.

Subject: [Opm] Greetings & compile questions


My name is Richard Huntrods, currently on Vancouver Island Canada. My
background is in Chemical Engineering (B.Sc. & M.Eng.). I spent 5+ years
in the 1980's writing reservoir simulators for a few companies in
Alberta, Canada. Since then I moved into consulting, then full-time
teaching. I'm currently teaching Computer Science at Athabasca
University - a distance education university in Alberta.

I have always been interested in reservoir simulation, and recently have
begun compiling and using the FLOW simulator from the OPM project.

I have successfully compiled and used the OPM suite on Ubuntu 14.04 as
per the build guidelines. I also have kept detailed notes of my process,
from starting VirtualBox on a Windows 7 PC through installing Ubuntu
14.04 and then obtaining and building the OPM sources. I also wrote a
few shell scripts to help automate the process and have confirmed it a
few times with clean builds.

I would be willing to share my documents and scripts if desired.

I'm now in the process of building OPM from source on Ubuntu 16.04. I
*almost* works. With a few minor changes required in dependency
packages, I have been able to get all the sources  compiled and running.
However, there's a problem with FLOW - it won't recognize many of the
output keywords such as ECHO, NOECHO, RPTSCHED from the SPE test cases,
and many more in the Norne test case. I am sure it's a missing
dependency in the Eclipse input code, but have not yet isolated it.

I am wondering who is currently working on compiling under Ubuntu 16.04
and whether or not they would be willing to share any tips and problems
they may already have seen and diagnosed. I'd be very willing to
contribute to this process.

Thanks in advance, and again welcome to everyone.

-Richard Huntrods, P.Eng.
