You are not wrong, but the version available in the Ubuntu repositories is very
old and has many bugs. There has been a major update to gpredict quite recently,
including improvements of the accuracy and prediction capabilities.

The new version is available for debian at  
and as far as I know Ubuntu uses the same packages as Debian, so you could give
it a try.

Information about third party packages for other Linux distributions, Windows
and Mac is avalable at
