I am not sure about cause of this error but I suspect symlinks of libraries can be broken. You may check it with "ls -la /usr/lib" and other library directories like /usr/local/lib. If some symlinks point to nowhere (to old but now missing libraries) command "sudo ldconfig" is safe way to fix this. Running ldconfig never broke anything yet, so you can try it.

I hope someone else may come up with better ideas.
