Fixing Ubuntu by Replacing /lib from live USB to HDD

gh flag

I have had my Ubuntu broken due to glibc issue mentioned here. I tried to fix it by preparing the fresh Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS bootable USB installer and then replacing the /lib that got broken during glibc install with the one that is on the live installer.

However I am now getting these:

Why is copy/pasting /lib from same revision to defected one is not working? Does /lib store user password which fails to start Login Service?

I'd say copy/pasting did work, but the result is not what you expected. I'd recommend a reinstall instead of spending hours, days, weeks trying to fix this. 18.04 will reach end of life soon anyway, so it would make sense to install a more recent version.
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
