Tracey forwarded your message to me and I've CC'ed my reply to the
Bio-Linux mailing list in case anyone else has the same problem.
We've done a 'point' release of Bio-Linux 8.0.8 that you can download:
Please note that Bio-Linux 8.0.7/8 are both based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS,
which will reach it's end of life this month (April 2019) so I do not
recommend using Bio-Linux 8, which is no longer supported by NERC/EOS.
I recommend downloading Ubuntu-MATE 18.04 LTS and creating a bootable
USB-stick from that, and use the USB-stick to install Ubuntu-MATE 18.04
permanently onto a hard disk (or an external USB disk):
[Note: There is a problem installing "metaphlan2" under Ubuntu 18.04]
Most of the packages in Bio-Linux 8 are now available in the Ubuntu
repository thanks to the work of the Debian-Med team. Please post a
message to the Debian-Med mailing list if you decide to try med-bio out.
I can provide you with a pre-release Bio-Linux 9-alpha 'live' USB-stick
based on Ubuntu-MATE 18.04 + packages from "med-bio" if you send me a
stamped addressed padded envelope to the address in my signature below.

Hi, Graham and Dylan.
I reported the bug and provided a patch - What else should I have done?

I've installed the "metaphlan2" package from Ubuntu "bionic-proposed"
successfully, with no errors reported. If "metaphlan2" is installed,
"med-bio" will install without errors in Ubuntu-MATE 18.04.2 LTS:

Thanks for you report.

You will be automatically notified when metaphlan2 will be updated in
LP: #1777165 will switch to "Fix released".
