You probably did not install the correct repository. Open a terminal and post the command results:

Code: Select all

inxi -r

Remove above repositories as they are not compatible with Mint 17.3, you need to add ownclient client repository for Ubuntu 14.04:

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/owncloud-client.list 
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/owncloud.list
apt purge owncloud*
Install the correct repository:

Code: Select all

echo "deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/isv:/ownCloud:/desktop/Ubuntu_14.04/ /" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/owncloud-client.list
Install ownclient client:

Code: Select all

apt update
apt install owncloud-client

Thanks so much for the detailed and specific instructions. One question:

Code: Select all

apt purge owncloud*
What does this command do? This won't remove my Owncloud Server installation, will it?

It will. Note owncloud server repository is neither compatible with Mint 17.3. If you want to keep the version installed replace first batch of above commands with:

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/owncloud-client.list 
apt purge owncloud-client
