Mastodon broken after applying suggested package upgrades

Hey there, I was able to sucessfully deploy Mastodon with the 1 click app in a few minutes. However after I logged in via SSH and applied the suggested package upgrades, the site broke. I see this in the logs:

Unable to load application: LoadError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory - /home/mastodon/live/vendor/bundle/ruby/3.0.0/gems/idn-ruby-0.1.4/lib/

bundler: failed to load command: puma (/home/mastodon/live/vendor/bundle/ruby/3.0.0/bin/puma)

/home/mastodon/live/vendor/bundle/ruby/3.0.0/gems/bootsnap-1.13.0/lib/bootsnap/load_path_cache/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:32:in `require’: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory - /home/mastodon/live/vendor/b>

It seems that the upgrade removed the library and I have not been able to reload it. I get messages saying that the package is already up to date, but it is not in that directory.

Any help is appreciated

Hello @mrroyce

You can check if the file is present here - /usr/lib64/

And then create a symlink

ln -sf /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/

You can also try to create another symlink or manually create the missing directory which is mentioned in the error - No such file or directory

Hope that this helps!
