The problem may be that all your other programs were compiled against
the version you had installed previously (which, as I remember, was
quite old).

libc6 is a very, very important package. You cannot upgrade it to
another major version without upgrading half of your system.

Correction: I guess it isn't broken in any way, it's just that all your
other programs are linked to an older version and don't work with the
new one.

Yes, I think so.

In an ideal world I would cure poverty and go to the gym at least three
days a week.
