I'm running a fresh new installed Ubuntu 18.04.3. So my problem is: when I install texstudio with terminal in the usual way everything seems to run smoothly:

zosiah@zosiah-HP-255-G6-Notebook-PC:~$ sudo apt install texstudio
[sudo] password for zosiah:

but when I try to run texstudio terminal says:

zosiah@zosiah-HP-255-G6-Notebook-PC:~$ texstudio
texstudio: error while loading shared libraries: libdouble-conversion.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I've been googling around for a while but I've not arrived to a solution... Any idea? P.S. I'm not being able to install texmaker and emacs25, too. This thing sounds to me pretty strange because until now I've never had such problem neither wit synaptic nor with apt and so on... What could be the matter?

EDIT: Hi N0rbert, thanks for replying! Here follow requested outputs:

zosiah@zosiah-HP-255-G6-Notebook-PC:~$ which texstudio
zosiah@zosiah-HP-255-G6-Notebook-PC:~$ ldd $(which texstudio) | grep not

(no output here)

EDIT 2 I'm adding the output of ldd $(locate libdouble-conversion.so.1):
