/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.20' not found

Post by goudeuk » 2021/06/17 14:46:08

Hello everyone

I'm trying to run a program on my CentOS7 (el7.x86_64) machine but I get the message below:


/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.20' not found
/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.21' not found


Some have solved this problem by installing the latest libstdc++, however I already have the latest gllibc++ installed.

yum install libstdc++
Package libstdc++-4.8.5-44.el7.x86_64 already installed and latest version


Also, I can not see GLIBCXX_3.4.20 inside libstdc++.so.6.

Code: Select all

strings /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6 | grep GLIBCXX

GLIBCXX_3.4
GLIBCXX_3.4.1
GLIBCXX_3.4.2
GLIBCXX_3.4.3
GLIBCXX_3.4.4
GLIBCXX_3.4.5
GLIBCXX_3.4.6
GLIBCXX_3.4.7
GLIBCXX_3.4.8
GLIBCXX_3.4.9
GLIBCXX_3.4.10
GLIBCXX_3.4.11
GLIBCXX_3.4.12
GLIBCXX_3.4.13
GLIBCXX_3.4.14
GLIBCXX_3.4.15
GLIBCXX_3.4.16
GLIBCXX_3.4.17
GLIBCXX_3.4.18
GLIBCXX_3.4.19
GLIBCXX_DEBUG_MESSAGE_LENGTH
Does anyone know how I can resolve this?

Many thanks

Yes, get a package built for CentOS 7. This one is not as it needs a newer version of libstdc++ than we ship. That will not change so the other alternative is to change the package.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

Maybe not an alternative, but GLIBCXX_3.4.20+21 are in CentOS 8.

The "program" sounds like a "binary blob" compiled in foreign platform, like Ubuntu. Perhaps a container with necessary bits for the program?
