Difficulty installing mass-editing and OCA server modules.

I've followed the instructions a this link: http://www.theopensourcerer.com/2014/09/how-to-install-openerp-odoo-8-on-ubuntu-server-14-04-lts/ and I git cloned both massediting and the OCA repos into my addon path and then I stopped and started the server, and refreshed the modules list but I odn't see any new modules. 


When I use the web interface to manually install the modules I get this error for the mass editing module:


Error while importing module 'mass_editing': "Module loading mass_editing failed: file /tmp/tmpkhzJCy/mass_editing/security/ir.model.access.csv could not be processed:\n Line 1 : No matching record found for external id 'model_mass_object' in field 'Object'"


and this error when I attempt to install the OCA tools:


Error while importing module 'server-tools': "'depends'"


Any advice?

on which version of odoo are you running ? for me OCA modules work fine on Odoo v8  nightly build 20th december 2014

I am using the most recent build as I just pulled from git the other day. I also tried this with the .deb package provided from the odoo website and it said the same thing.

Try to use an older version of the nightly build maybe..
