According to this:

Can you please move libpopt.so* from /usr/lib to /lib? This would be
important for the next cryptsetup release to move to core.

Remark: To ensure proper dynamic linking, it should look like this:
/usr/lib/libpopt.so -> /lib/libpopt.so
/lib/libpopt.so -> libpopt.so.0
/lib/libpopt.so.0 -> libpopt.so.0.X.Y

Without the libpopt.so symlink in /usr/lib/, the linker will always
choose the static library over the dynamic one on build-time. I ran into
problems with this a lot already :(

If you are unsure what to do, please notify me and I will help.
