When I try to create a postgis extension the follow error is raised:

CREATE EXTENSION postgis;
ERROR:  could not load library "/usr/lib/postgresql/9.5/lib/postgis-2.3.so": /usr/lib/liblwgeom-2.3.so.0: undefined symbol: GEOSClipByRect

For the installation, I have followed this guide: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.11/ref/contrib/gis/install/geolibs/

Ubuntu: 16.04

Postgres: 9.5.8

Could you tell us which version you have for liblwgeom and libgeos?

Do you have other GIS-related external package repositories enabled?

 apt-cache show libgeos-dev | grep Version
Version: 3.5.0-1ubuntu2

apt-cache show liblwgeom-dev | grep Version
Version: 2.3.3+dfsg-1.pgdg16.04+1
Version: 2.2.1+dfsg-2

I've installed GEOS, PROJ.4 and GDAL following this https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.11/ref/contrib/gis/install/geolibs/

Thanks!

This shows that you have the pgdg repository activated. So you have a
mix of Ubuntu and pgdg packages, which explains your issues.

Anyway, this is not a Django-related issue, so I suggest you get help
from your distribution, trying to get back to pure Ubuntu packages, and
then your problem will probably be solved.
