Heloo, may be, you can test, this command.

root@proxy-serv:~ # apt-file search libdb-6.0.so
libdb6.0: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libdb-6.0.so

root@proxy-serv:~ # ls -al /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libdb-6.0.so
ls: cannot access /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libdb-6.0.so: No such file or directory

root@proxy-serv:~ # cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
root@proxy-serv:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu# ln -s /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.6.0/lib/libdb-6.0.so ./
