There is a strange thing in Backports:
openSUSE:Backports:SLE-15:Update contains version 3.00
openSUSE:Backports:SLE-15-SP1:Update contains version 3.00
openSUSE:Backports:SLE-15-SP2:Update contains version
openSUSE:Backports:SLE-15-SP3:Update contains version 3.00
openSUSE:Backports:SLE-15-SP4:Update contains version, but a slightly different spec than SP2

That is why I suggest to fix this bug by updating all repositories to

It is a binary tool, there are no known incompatibilities.
