Launcher not working after update (SOLVED)

The launcher wanted to do an update this morning (7 am Pacific time) & I OK'd it. Afterward, nothing would start. I try to start it in terminal & I see quite a period of time downloading---but no launcher & after the download period everything just hangs. I do not see anything in logs....generally without a clue as to which direction to go to find answers for this.......

Running Debian Sid (all updates current)...no major problems with the old launcher.

See the posts below---was a ssl problem.

The same using an up-to-date Debian Stretch, the new launcher version doesn't work.

I am running stretch and have the same issue after updating. I solved it by running:

apt-get install libssl1.0-dev


Background: QT does not support the openssl version 1.1 shipped by debian, which is linked by default as a shared library. Installing the dev header files the evelauncher linker switches to the older version of libssl.

(Groan.....) Not another ssl problem....... THANK YOU for the "heads up" This is the 3rd time I've run into a ssl issue......will be glad when that is ironed out finally.

If someone else is having problems with this on Arch, the solution for me was to install
libopenssl-1.0-compat
from the AUR, and then running evelauncher.sh with the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH set to /usr/lib/openssl-1.0-compat/, i.e., running the game with the command
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0-compat/ ./evelauncher.sh
in the evelauncher directory.

Running ubuntu 17.04 and this did not work for me. Did you do anything else (symbolic links, etc)?
