In case it seems to be an Ubuntu packaging issue.

Please check with

which grass

if it really picks the right startup script from the 7.0.2-1~ubuntu14.04.1 package.

It seems to me that you installed both packages - grass from ubuntugis (1) a grass7 from Launchpad (2). Please remove grass7, the stable packages from (2) will be removed, stable GRASS packages will be maintained only within ubuntugis project. GRASS Launchpad project will provide only daily builds (3).

(1) https://launchpad.net/~ubuntugis/+archive/ubuntu/ubuntugis-unstable

(2) https://launchpad.net/~grass/+archive/ubuntu/grass-stable

(3) https://launchpad.net/~grass/+archive/ubuntu/grass-devel

@martini I am using ppa:grass/grass-stable because the ubuntugis-unstable one does not have a package for 7.0.2. I guess that eventually it will get uploaded there too.

Anyway, I uninstalled/reinistalled everything and it seems to be working now. It seems that the grass-stable repository is installing a binary named grass70 while the ubuntugis-unstable one installs a binary named grass and that's where the problem was.

I am closing the issue.

Replying to pmav99:

you are right. grass-stable is now obsolete, I will maintain stable package on ubuntugis-unstable (I will upload 7.0.2 ASAP).
