For Ubuntu 12.04 (which was causing the same messages for me) the full steps to get SNMP working appear to be as follows :

  1. Install snmpd : apt-get install snmpd
  2. Ensure the multiverse repository is enabled :

    apt-get install python-software-properties
    add-apt-repository 'deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise multiverse'
    apt-get update
    
  3. Install the snmp-mibs-downloader : apt-get install snmp-mibs-downloader

  4. Edit /etc/default/snmpd/ and set MIBS=UCD-SNMP-MIB (this is the key fix)

  5. Restart snmpd : /etc/init.d/snmpd restart

According to the Debian documentation, try commenting out the following line in /etc/default/snmpd:

export MIBS=/usr/share/snmp/mibs
