Recently I upgraded my laptop to Ubuntu 16.04.
This has apparently caused
git to stop working.
Specifically, when I call any
git command, I get the following error:
$ git st git: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Ubuntu 16.04 appears to use
libcrypto.so.10, not the earlier
libcrypto.so.0.9.8. One might suspect that this implies that my version of
git is out of date, but when I go to upgrade it, I'm told it's already the newest version:
$ sudo apt-get install git --upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done git is already the newest version (1:2.7.4-0ubuntu1). 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 5 not upgraded.
What is going on here, and what should I do?
