Recently, Homebrew drops OpenSSL v1.0 for v1.1. The popular TagUI Github issue suggests downgrading openssl to v1.0 because their stack hasn’t support v1.1 yet. But that’s not a good idea in general. This posts presents my solution to the specific issue I saw.

When I reinstalled openssl v1.1, git suddently not working:

$ git fetch origin
dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib
  Referenced from: /usr/local/bin/ssh
  Reason: image not found
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

When you read the message, it was quite clear: ssh is not working. My solution is as simple as

brew upgrade openssh

The new openssh version works fine with openssl v1.1

$ brew info openssh                                                                                                                                             [10:29:34]
