It's the program which takes care of all your shared libraries.  After
Debian installs a new shared library, it runs this to update all the
symbolic links to these libraries so nothing breaks.

This sometimes happens when removing development packages.  If you
have the "libc6-dev" package installed, try uninstalling and
reinstalling it.  If not, try this:

  dpkg --purge libc6-dev
