Angry hello need help

Hi all
I have attempt to update my and all went wrong
So I have try to do a rollback
This is watt I done but still has the problem

cd openssl-0.9.7a/

ldconfig -v

rm -f /lib/
rm -f /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/ /lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

I have search Google to see if I can find any solution for my problem and nothing
When I tape apt-get upgrade I get this message

[root@ /tiago]# apt-get upgrade
/usr/bin/engine: error while loading shared libraries: /lib/ file too short

I can’t connect to dashboard any more by taping my ip with port 81

I’m running a Clark Connect 4.3

Please bear in mind that I am new to this and so would appreciate being told in plain English what I need to do or where I need to start

And sorry for my English

Thank you

Well, the English

You might edit your post giving it a more informative and inviting title. I addition, try standard spelling and the use of capital letters, and a clearer separation between the commands that you have used and the actions you have taken.

These suggestions are meant to increase the chance that someone will read and reply to, rather than ignore your post, to your greater benefit.

Welcome to LQ.

It is always worth having a verified backup before trying any upgrade process.

You could try:
sudo apt-get remove openssl
Make note of any additional applications that may be removed so that you can re-install them later.

To re-install openssl, use:
sudo apt-get install openssl
On my system uninstalling openssl would also uninstal 34 other applications, so be careful.
