apt-get issues...Glibc


I recently tried to install simplescreenrecorder from a tar.gz file and now this happens...

Code:
/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.18' not found (required by /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6)
This happens everytime I try to run apt-get or aptitude. I cannot update, remove, or install the glibc. Basically, I cannot do anything with the package managers at this point. The file came with a uninstall.sh which I tried to run but it is not working either...I tried to remove it all with dpkg, it just says "ignoring request to remove because it is not installed", with both "ssr" and "simplescreenrecorder". When I try to launch the app now it says it does not exist...

I have tried installing the glibc from deb file using dpkg but it does not fix it. I cannot even run apt-get update right now. I am kinda scared to even shut down this machine now.. I understand this is an important component?

I will add I cannot even run apt-get --help at this point. It is as if apt-get does not exist right now....

Anyone have any help??? I could really use it. This is a mess....

This was how the install went...I no longer have synaptic, or several other apps either...

Code:

For some reason I have impeccable abilities for wrecking a system. I don't know how this happens, but I seem to grab the wrong packages all the time. I wrecked my last system setting up Spotify...

glibc is the soul of the system, not really important, just like the kernel itself. downgrading libc6 probably killed your system. You may try to reinstall the original 2.19-10 (not to speak about the other packages too).
