I don't think that error has anything to do with samba, it looks more 
like a sudo error, I used to use 4.1.6 on Linux Mint and never had a 
problem with it.

OK, choose a distro and then follow instructions on how to set up an AD 
DC on that distro, can I suggest that you could do worse than follow the 
instructions on the Samba wiki: https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Main_Page

As for a distro, well, as you are used to Ubuntu, you could use 14.04, 
or Debian instead
