In an apt-get upgrade i got stuck in this situation where libc-bin constantly provides Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I tried several apt commands such as clean, dpkg-reconfigure and --reinstall but i had no luck.

this is the output of a sudo dpkg --configure -a

andrea@andrea-pc: ~ $ sudo dpkg --configure -a

After debugging with strace I found out that the problem was libtic.so.5.9

I then

sudo mv /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtic.so.5.9 /root
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install libtinfo5 --reinstall

The latter is to restore libtic :)

Not sure why but now it works.

I ran the following to find which library that made ldconfig crash:

sudo strace ldconfig

Then I moved it to /root and reran ldconfig. When ldconfig no longer crashed, the upgrade also worked.
