Did you install the development ubuntu package (I am guessing you did since have git-openemr for the path). Note this is a development package that collects the most recent development codebase(5.0.1-dev). It installs to path /var/www and sets up a alias with apache, so it should work in /var/www path. This package should be plug and play (easy easy removal/install to keep testing out most recent codebase), so if there were any issues after install, then would be a bug.
If you are bringing in a 4.2.2 database, then will need to run the sql_upgrade.php script(and set selector to 4.2.2; note it will default to 5.0.0 since this is version 5.0.1; also note the upgrade can take a really long time because it is converting database to innodb).
