I applied for this position about two weeks ago. They said they would start reviewing application on Oct 15. And I saw the ad posted again today. Does that mean that they were not happy with the hitherto applications (including mine) and wanted to receive more? Pretty discouraging!

no, it probably means 1) They planned to post that ad anyways or 2) Didn't receive a large enough pool of applicants and want to increase it before starting to rank people
I second what sds said. It is probably just a repost that they had paid for… or had set-up already.
This happened all of the time last year. There were jobs that were already interviewing people, but their HR folks were still posting the job ads in various outlets. This is NOT something that should be read into.
Likewise, if you missed a job deadline and the job has a new ad posting, well, you probably missed the deadline. You can still apply anyway, but odds are the search is moving along without you, even though the ad is new.
