Localwp openssl version ubuntu 20.04 breaks pull from wpengine

I’ve been using localwp just fine for a few years. Have the latest version (5.9.4 linux), ubuntu 20.04. Now when I try to pull sites from wpengine, I get a libcrypto.so.1.0.0 error. My openssl is slightly newer, must have been a security patch in the last day from ubuntu?

Here is the error from the logs when I try to pull …

{"thread":"main","class":"DevKitService","message":"ssh: /lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0: version `OPENSSL_1.0.1' not found (required by ssh)\nssh: /lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0: version `OPENSSL_1.0.0' not found (required by ssh)\n","level":"warn","timestamp":"2020-12-01T11:46:07.352Z"}

My openssl version is OpenSSL 1.1.1f 31 Mar 2020. But I think it’s been that way for a while. Did some lightning update happen behind the scenes.

Can’t really work at this point, any help is appreciated.

In case any other unfortunate soul has this problem, downgrade to openssl 1.0.2g … fixes issue for now.

Thanks for your help reporting and zeroing in on a workaround @cschaub!
