can't open jpg with the gimp

ok .. I just updated alot of things(libs x11 and a few others) including the gimp, but now I can't open .jpgs w/ it.. it says:

Opening '/path/to/jpg' failed:

Unknown file type

I can't save as a jpg either and the jpg extention isn't in the select file type menu, though most other formats are .. I'm completely lost

I'm using gimp 2.2.8

it gives me this in the terminal:

/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/jpeg: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

(gimp-2.2:24356): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: gimp-2.2: wire_read(): error

jpeg plugin for gimp is missing,
either re-install gimp or just copy jpeg plugin file from another system with the same gimp version.
