My plex was getting unhealthy and not starting with the error below

Starting Plex Media Server.
/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Media Server: error while loading shared libraries: libva.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

if you are the same then

ssh into the plex docker server
docker exec -it plex /bin/bash
then
apt-get update
apt-get install nano
then
nano /etc/services.d/plex/run
change line below
exec s6-setuidgid plex /bin/sh -c 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/plexmediaserver /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex\ Media\ Server'
to
exec s6-setuidgid plex /bin/sh -c 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/lib /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex\ Media\ Server'

shutdown container and restart it

all were changing is /lib on the end of LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/plexmediaserve

my plex is not running fine again
