If you find an error saying "gnome-control-center: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" after upgrading Solus GNU/Linux 64 bit, you can follow this instruction to fix it:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/

The source of problem was because GNOME Control Center asked for but this file was gone and upgraded into because of upgrading. So the solution was I just needed to create new "file" named "linking" to the existing The command above did this solution.
