Harry's fixed worked for me also.  
And for the people out there (like me) who have trouble deciphering code.

1.Find the mythexport.postinst file
(for me it was at /var/lib/dpkg/info   (unbuntu 14.10))

2. remove the line with the -- (as you will see the -- is not actually
there)

3. add the line with the ++ in it's place (please leave the ++ off)

4. save and exit

5. apt-get install mythexport

6. done

(note:  I had already manually created the .mythtv directory in the
/var/www/ directory)

Hope this helps
