Julia: symbol lookup error: julia: undefined symbol: jl_uv_stderr

Recently the following error message haphazardly crops up: julia: symbol lookup error: julia: undefined symbol: jl_uv_stderr, making everyday work frustrating. Various recent versions 1.5.2 - 1.5.3 of Julia has been compiled against Intel MKL, installed in /usr/local/bin produces similar behaviour. After some time: days, hours, etc… the REPL stops working with the posted message. Anyone else is experiencing similar?
