Do you happen to use Kubuntu?
I believe this might be a packaging issue. Make sure to have instlalled the corresponding libsasl2 packages.

I don't have a Kubuntu system at hand but I believe at least libsasl2-2 and libsasl2-modules-kdexoauth2 should be installed.

These are the packages I see from a Jammy contaner:

Code: Select all
root@ubuntu-jammy:/# apt-cache search sasl | sort -V | grep sasl2
cyrus-sasl2-doc - Cyrus SASL - documentation
libsasl2-2 - Cyrus SASL - authentication abstraction library
libsasl2-dev - Cyrus SASL - development files for authentication abstraction library
libsasl2-modules - Cyrus SASL - pluggable authentication modules
libsasl2-modules-db - Cyrus SASL - pluggable authentication modules (DB)
libsasl2-modules-gssapi-heimdal - Pluggable Authentication Modules for SASL (GSSAPI)
libsasl2-modules-gssapi-mit - Cyrus SASL - pluggable authentication modules (GSSAPI)
libsasl2-modules-kdexoauth2 - library to integrate with Cyrus SASL
libsasl2-modules-ldap - Cyrus SASL - pluggable authentication modules (LDAP)
libsasl2-modules-otp - Cyrus SASL - pluggable authentication modules (OTP)
libsasl2-modules-sql - Cyrus SASL - pluggable authentication modules (SQL)
sasl2-bin - Cyrus SASL - administration programs for SASL users database
