Subject: [devuan-dev] bug#732: Every update kills system as library is not in /lib
Package: libpcre2-8-0
Version: 10.42-1
Severity: critical

Since libpcre2-8-0 was moved to /usr by debian, every update kills my
whole system as nearly everything is depending on that library.

Every other library can be managed via dpkg-divert but not libpcre2-8-0.

So after every update, my system is unusable and unbootable until I boot
a rescue system and manually move everything from
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpcre2-8.so* to /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/. Also
apt broke in the middle as also apt and dpkg depending on libpcre2-8-0
and the update procedure breaks symlinks in /lib.

Please move libpcre2-8-0 back to /lib where it belongs to.
