It is probably because you are missing .bash_profile or .bashrc in your home directory
Check for yourself:
ls -al ~/|grep -E ".bash_profile|.bashrc"
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root&nbs........
Usually this is because when you created your user you added a user but didn't create their home directory and/or for some reason your .bashrc and .bash_profile in ~ (home) is broken/missing.
In your home just create the following files with the following content to solve it:
.bashrc and .bash_profile.
To apply it just relogin/start a new bash session
# Get the aliases and funct........
ls: error while loading shared libraries: libtermcap.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This is not an ldd problem or case of anything missing, this only happened after I upradedUbuntu.
declare -x PATH="/home/user/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games"
"/home/user/bin" is the problem! It's weird because I have no idea how it happened.........
