Transmission doesn't start for for error while loading shared libraries

Asked by Vincenzo on 2020-04-05

Ciao, I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 and Transmission app doesn't start by clicking on the icon (it seems loading up in the first seconds but then crash). So I launched it in the terminal and I got the following error message:
"transmission-gtk: error while loading shared libraries: libminiupnpc.so.10: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

I also read the similar discussion reported in question #213860 (https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/transmission/+question/213860) but with the solution explained here I'm not able to solve my problem.

Here below you can find the output of some commands for more details:

You already have a question open and active about this. Why make a new question? It makes no sense
