Your job script is incorrect. Specifically, define your LD_LIBRARY_PATH
6 different times, with each one overwriting the previous definition:


After these lines, your LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set to


This directory pointless to have in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH, too since that
directory itself won't contain any library files.

The correct syntax to define your LD_LIBRARY_PATH with the above
directories would be this:


But that can be simplified significantly, only one of these files
