Solution

Installing "ncurses-compat-libs" additional package on Red Hat Linux 8.x will add "libncurses.so.5" so that problem will be avoided. 

1. Install "ncurses-compat-libs" additional package.
yum install ncurses-compat-libs
 
2. Perform the BMR invalidation task.
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bmrsetupmaster -undo -f
 
3. Run bmrsetupmaster again.
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bmrsetupmaster
