Auc - libncurses error

When running auc, I'm getting a libncurses error, but I don't have "libncurses" installed. Is anyone else getting this error?

It does not stop the update process nor does it seem to harm the packages with libncurses6 dependencies.

Are you sure you want to continue the upgrade process? [N/y] ^C

root@OpenWrt-mt7622:~# opkg list-installed | grep -i libncurses
libncurses6 - 6.4-2

root@OpenWrt-mt7622:~# opkg list | grep -i libncurses
libncurses-dev - 6.4-2 - Development files for the ncurses library
libncurses6 - 6.4-2 - Terminal handling library (Unicode)


libcurses might be a dependency for something on the new release

I'm not seeing this on SNAPSHOT

I'd recommend moving to SNAPSHOT if you want to use auc at present, cutting edge is fun.

There's something strange going on with the sysupgrade database, see the firmware selector thread (link below).

But, you actually do have libncurses installed, it's an alias for libncurses6:

You can see what depends on it using whatdepends:

$ opkg whatdepends libncurses
Root set:
  libncurses6
What depends on root set
        parted 3.4-2    depends on libncurses6
        libreadline8 8.1-1      depends on libncursesw6
        vim-full 8.2-5  depends on libncurses6
        htop 3.2.2-1    depends on libncurses6
        fdisk 2.37.4-1  depends on libncursesw6
