Problems with libboost

Hello everyone and happy easter.

I’m trying to use some software on my server (Ubuntu), but I’m getting an error with libboost when I try to run the software.

./luso-cli: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_system.so.1.62.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I’ve installed libboost1.62.0 both from source and apt.

How can I debug or fix this error?

I got it fixed, my install from source conflicted with the one installed by apt, I ran purge –remove boost, and that fixed my problem so only my needed version was left.
