Error: "cardano-node: error while loading shared libraries: libsodium.so.23: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Hey People :slightly_smiling_face:
I am just going through the Stake Pool School videos and since a few hours I am continuously running into the same error, ever since I closed the initial terminal I did all the exercises with.

If I want to query the balance of my payment address for example, I will get this message:
“cardano-node: error while loading shared libraries: libsodium.so.23: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory”

Anybody an idea?

Thank you so much!
Best Regards, Bastian
