Problem with VALGRIND

After running : valgrind --leak-check=yes ./a.out i get following output:

==3555== Memcheck, a memory error detector
==3555== Copyright (C) 2002-2022, and GNU GPL'd, by Julian Seward et al.
==3555== Using Valgrind-3.21.0 and LibVEX; rerun with -h for copyright info

valgrind:  Fatal error at startup: a function redirection
valgrind:  which is mandatory for this platform-tool combination
valgrind:  cannot be set up.  Details of the redirection are:
valgrind:  A must-be-redirected function
valgrind:  whose name matches the pattern:      strlen
valgrind:  in an object with soname matching:
valgrind:  was not found whilst processing
valgrind:  symbols from the object with soname:
valgrind:  Possible fixes: (1, short term): install glibc's debuginfo
valgrind:  package on this machine.  (2, longer term): ask the packagers
valgrind:  for your Linux distribution to please in future ship a non-
valgrind:  stripped (or whatever the dynamic linker .so is called)
valgrind:  that exports the above-named function using the standard
valgrind:  calling conventions for this platform.  The package you need
valgrind:  to install for fix (1) is called
valgrind:    On Debian, Ubuntu:                 libc6-dbg
valgrind:    On SuSE, openSuSE, Fedora, RHEL:   glibc-debuginfo
valgrind:  Note that if you are debugging a 32 bit process on a
valgrind:  64 bit system, you will need a corresponding 32 bit debuginfo
valgrind:  package (e.g. libc6-dbg:i386).
valgrind:  Cannot continue -- exiting now.  Sorry.

ldd --version gives 2.38
Any idea on how to fix this issue?

Yes, use Arch or Manjaro unstable.

More important is pacman -Qi glibc | grep Version. It needs to be 2.38-7 because that’s the current Arch version and DEBUGINFOD_URLS= only has debug symbols for that version.

As @zbe said, use the unstable branch if you need this.
