I'm aware of that. Note that you are building on an openSUSE
Tumbleweed image, which is a *rolling* distribution and therefore
quite up to date so this is quite an aggressive requirement.
I raised this with the SUSE packagers yesterday.

As a general rule (as agreed with the wider community) you are
required to give 2 weeks notice of system dependency bumps.
