Your guess is correct; the distribution is Kubuntu 16.04 LTS. Thanks for
the hint about the packaging bug. kdegraphics-thumbnailers is affected
too.

I filed two bugs in Launchpad.
ffmpegthumbs:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ffmpegthumbs/+bug/1574037
kdegraphics-thumbnailers:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kdegraphics-thumbnailers/+bug/1574049

Until the packages are fixed there is a workaround (I took it from
kubuntuforums.net).
This command will link all the files from /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/plugins/ to
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/plugins/*
/usr/lib/x86_...

64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/
