Pandoc has changed enough to break GenerateManpage.hs since we first
used it for the manpage. But I think your issue is that ubuntu does
not seem to include the templates listed in  if we can believe .
Maybe there is another package you must install. You could use your
own template if you modify the GenerateManpage to put something like:
template <- readFile "path/to/your/own/template.man"
where we currently have:
Right template <- getDefaultTemplate Nothing "man"
and the same for the html template.
