I run the same OS, and while Ubuntu is great for keeping some things up to date, at the speed at which Snort is updated, you’re only real option is to go from source.  2.9.2 is ancient…I’d install so you can get the full ruleset.  Keep in mind it’s not going to be pretty as you’ll most likely have to rip out the current Snort.
