This is not an error about if you have libpcap installed or not, this is
more a problem with opening the interface and/or setting it to
promiscuous (yes, error message is weak due to libpcap not giving back
any reasons for some issues).

Do you have anything in your syslog/dmesg?

Does `tcpdump -i <interface>` work? (it basically opens the interface
the same way using libpcap)

Cheers & happy new year,
