Dear Maintainer,

* What led up to the situation?

    Trying to install openvswitch-common + openvswitch-switch in debian testing usig apt. Installation exits with error message when running postinst step

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

    apt install openvswitch-common opevswitch-switch

* What was the outcome of this action?

    broken package openvswitch-common, not installed package openvswitch-switch

* What outcome did you expect instead?

    working installation of openvswitch

Taking a short look at the arm64 package of openvswitch-common I think I could identify two issues.

The first one is that libopenvswitch-2.13.so.0.0.0 seems to be missing from the package, there is only the libopenvswitch-2.13.so.0 symlink.

The second issue seems to be a hardcoded arch path in the postinst script: ... "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libopenvswitch-2.13.so.0.0.0" ...
which obviously doesn't seem to be correct for the arm64 package.

I also had a short look at the version 2.10 arm64 package of openvswitch-common from buster. That one does have the according .so.0.0.0 file and it
comes completely without any postinst script, so I assume both issues got introduced with version 2.13 of this package.

Thank you very much for having a look at those issues.

Best regards,
