Running apt update gives me this,
apt: relocation error: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libapt-private.so.0.0: symbol _ZN9pkgSystem9LockInnerEv, version APTPKG_5.0 not defined in file libapt-pkg.so.5.0 with link time reference
In an attempt to fix this, I downloaded the apt package from here on packages.ubuntu.com, installed it with
apt upgrade and that told me to fix it with
-f. I did that and it brought me back to the original issue. I assume there is a library issue here, but I am not sure what I need to update.
When I asked on reddit I was advised to reinstall; is this the best way to resolve this issue?
Any ideas on where to look or what to do to fix this?
As I cannot do this with
apt, I would need to
dpkg any packages required to fix this, so please link me to the relevant sources, if applicable.
EDIT, I have contacted the Ubuntu bugtracker questions team and found a temporary fix, https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/675775
