I'm not aware of RT 4.2 packages on Ubuntu or Debian.  Ubuntu in fact
tends to run multiple versions of packages behind the Debian release.

Since you're using the debian packages, which offer you database
choices during setup, you should rerun their setup script with
dpkg-reconfigure request-tracker4 and also ensure that you've
installed the rt4-db-mysql package.

If you've in fact installed from source, then you should rerun
configure selecting mysql, not sqlite.  RT's default is MySQL so you
would have had to pass an explicit selection of sqlite.
