Dude, you made a mess of your system. It looks like some packages were linked to different versions of the library and they cannot be found now, or the soft links to the libraries are broken. I suspect libtinfo.so is only the tip of the iceberg. There might be much more damage in there.

You should have read these carefully before proceeding with slackpkg:
https://slackpkg.org/documentation.html
https://docs.slackware.com/slackware:slackpkg

I think the best you can do is a clean install of Slackware and be careful the next time.

slackpkg install-new if your going to current from 14.2.
since your borked.
how to fix boot your install disk do not format no partitions.
then full install when it fails reboot you will have base system now.
Code:
vim /etc/slackpkg/mirrors
scroll to the repo you need uncomment it save
if in run level one
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.init1
that gets your wired internet up.
or boot liveslack and chroot then install over the top to fix.
