yes, I still have that previous version in /var/cache/apt/archives, and
trying to install it with dpkg also fails with the same error.

$ php -r 'if (!function_exists("utf8_encode")) { die("no such
function\n"); }'
no such function


$ php --version

$ php5 -r 'if (!function_exists("utf8_encode")) { die("no such

(no output)

roundcube-core depends on php5, so it seems the php version 7 from
testing is to blame.  Indeed:

# update-alternatives --set php /usr/bin/php5
update-alternatives: using /usr/bin/php5 to provide /usr/bin/php (php)
in manual mode
# aptitude safe-upgrade
Setting up roundcube-core (1.1.5+dfsg.1-1~bpo8+2) ...
Determining localhost credentials from /etc/mysql/debian.cnf: succeeded.
dbconfig-common: writing config to /etc/dbconfig-common/roundcube.conf
dbconfig-common: flushing administrative password
This instance of Roundcube is up-to-date.
Have fun!
apache2_invoke roundcube.conf: already enabled
Setting up roundcube (1.1.5+dfsg.1-1~bpo8+2) ...
Setting up roundcube-plugins (1.1.5+dfsg.1-1~bpo8+2) ...

and everything is fine again.
