Description: whenever you run any utility in texlive-core (pdflatex, latex, etc.) it fails with a missing symbol: _ZN6Object11getTypeNameEv. Tracking the library that defined something similar, I've seen poppler recently changed from 0.59 to 0.60, and in the code it seems this particular function changed from non-const to const, causing the symbol to be different and a missing link symbol. Recompiling the texlive-core package with the new poppler 0.60 may solve the issue, but at the moment, any texlive-core program that use poppler is failing.

Additional info:
* package version(s) poppler 0.60.0, texlive-core 2017.44918-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce: Execute pdflatex with these packages and versions.
This task depends upon

It appears poppler-0.60.0 was pushed to [testing] by mistake: it requires a proper rebuild of packages that depend on it, which is underway. You can expect an updated [testing] tomorrow or so.

Poppler didn't bump the soname, so the ABI shouldn't have changed. Someone upstream screwed up. Anyway, like vesath said, rebuild is in progress.
