Default gnuplot stopped working: unable to find shared library

Dear All,
I need help to solve a strange issue occurred after a normal update. Gnuplot does not work anymore with the following message:
gnuplot: error while loading shared libraries: .5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This happens for every standard user but for root, that is perfectly able to run the software. So it looks related to user-specific environment configuration. It seems that some configuration files containing the name of the library cannot be read anymore. I tried to unset every environment variable I can imagine affecting this behavior with any success.

My system is a Ubuntu version (xenial) running under Qlustar (a distribution specific for cluster management). All other applications work fine (including the graphical paraFoam and Veusz).

The output of command ldd /usr/bin/gnuplot reads:
/usr/bin/gnuplot: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ unsupported version 16 of Verdef record
/usr/bin/gnuplot: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ unsupported version 16 of Verdef record
Inconsistency detected by dl-version.c: 224: _dl_check_map_versions: Assertion `needed != NULL' failed!
Thank you in advance for every hint you can give me to solve this problem.

Yours sincerely,
