It's missing link in /usr/lib64: libssh_threads.so.4 -> libssh.so.4.5.1

Funny detail: rpm -ql libssh-0.8.1-3 lists libssh_threads.so.4 but if you check the filesystem the link isn't there. It looks like the reason is that it points to a link and not a file! I will fix it.

Cheers; There is a link libssh_threads.so.4.5.1 but not just a major version, though.

If you browse the libssh-0.8.1-3 RPM package, the link is there, but RPM doesn't install it to the file system because it points to a symlink! I find this strange. However use:

FEDORA-2018-4794ce5b1f

Temporary Fix:

cd /tmp
wget https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//packages/libssh/0.8.1/3.fc28/x86_64/libssh-0.8.1-3.fc28.x86_64.rpm
rpm2cpio libssh-0.8.1-3.fc28.x86_64.rpm | cpio -idmv
mv /tmp/usr/lib64/* /lib64

This is a SONAME version bump in a stable Fedora release.

Please rebuild every package that depends on libssh.

Shame on testers for +1s on this.

See bug 1618616.

Your assertion is incorrect, the latest build preserves sonames as far as I can tell.

Correct, it was the symlink that was corrupted that caused apps to not see the library. The -4 build fixes this.

It is still troubling that there are +1s here for a package that does not work.

I'm surprised then how -3 is working fine for me. <shrug>

@mooninite: I installed it on 3 systems and had no trouble with it. Not everyone has the same set of packages on their systems, so no everyone will hit the same problems.
