qBitTorrent not starting on Arch Linux

Those of you, who use qBitTorrent as your client on Arch Linux, might be seeing this error message when trying to start qbittorrent from terminal.

qbittorrent: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
From the GUI menu, it won't show any error message.

The following command executed as root should fix the issue(it did for me):

ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
I don't think I need to explain why this fixes this issue. It is quite obvious from the error message and the command.
