Did you build erlang yourself? If so, you may need to rebuild, this time
with the openssl dev libraries installed as they'll be necessary for
crypto to be buildable.

Alternatively, you may just need to apt-get install erlang-ssl.

Or, you could have multiple versions of erlang installed, maybe some
with very old versions of crypto, which is now upsetting things.

If none of the above works, which distribution are you using, and how
did you install erlang?
