I would really appreciate it if you tell me how to do it step by step since I am a beginner .

Sorry, glibc is your OS ( together with the kernel ),
and glibc cannot be changed.


Please tell which application it is about.

Changing (upgrading/downgrading) glibc is no joke and no fun. Took me more than a week and a lot of headache and heartache to get my computer working again. You might want to look at Linux documentation project and read the info about how to change glibc.
If there is an application that is causing issues you can certainly post it because it would be easier to deal with the application rather than glibc.
Hope this helps.
