-bash: /bin/ls: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

We installed Oracle Linux release 6 update 2 for X86_64 on a virtual machine. After the machine was built, everything

was ok. After a few days, the ls command produces the following error:

 

-bash: /bin/ls: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

 

So far the only thing turning up in searches is the problem is related to 64 bit vs 32 bit libraries being installed. The strange thing in this case is that nothing was done to the server between the time the ls worked and the time it stopped working. Nothing installed, no changes made. Could the system have dome some automatic update and installed a wrong version of a library? The machine has been built 3 times, and in each case this has happened. A few days after being built, ls stops working with the above error. Has anyone experienced this?
