When trying to install Scribe, either with AMTM or manually using the command line found on the install page, i get this

Installing syslog-ng (3.29.1-3) to root...
Configuring syslog-ng.
syslog-ng: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

syslog-ng version 3.19 or higher required!
Please update your Entware packages and run scribe install again.

Removing package syslog-ng from root...

Entware package is installed and up to date. Got an AX86U with 386.1 installed. Router works flawlessly, just can't install Scribe... wierd.

Any idea why i am missing this shared library?

Try first running:
opkg update
opkg upgrade
Then try to install it again.

As you suggested, did opkg update and opkg upgrade, and nothing new was done, no package was upgraded, everything is up to date... and still the same error message trying to install Scribe.

I resolved my problem. Had to delete jffs and re-install... problem solved after this (with all reconfiguration involved with jffs deletion).
