Dear taksoy007,

If you're not sure where to go, it's best that you work with your admin team to get things set up for you regarding libgssapi and Kerberos.

The following data is provided only to document what worked for me; because I'm not your system administrator, I cannot say exactly what steps you should take in your scenario.

In general, the goal is to locate the file that is available on your system, and then link to it as /usr/lib/

For example, on my Ubuntu 18.04 virtual machine (with a snapshot in place for reverting to in case I decided I wanted to abandon the effort), I ran this command...
...and it provided me with a path to a file named (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

I noted the path and used the ln command to create the needed link:
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
In addition, I decided to install the krb5-user package so that I could use kinit to create Kerberos tickets for use in authenticating to SSH2 servers within the desired Kerberos realm.

All of this was done on a virtual machine where I could revert with ease to a known-good snapshot in case I needed to get back to a known-good setup.

Again, consult with your system administrator for assistance with configuring your system for libgssapi and Kerberos.
