I just tested xindy:

xindy --version
   xindy release: 2.5.1
   xindy script version: 1.18
   /usr/local/texlive/2018/bin/x86_64-linux/xindy.run: error while 
loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.5: cannot open shared object 
file: No such file or directory

locate libncurses.so

I use Linux (openSUSE Tumbleweed). After installing the package 
"libncurses5" by hand the error disappear.
