I suspect you're hitting old installed versions of packages in that build
on that machine, especially since the failure is not universal, but I don't
have any visibliity into the internals of that system so I have no way of
knowing if that's true or not.

You can use Gabor's builder.r-hub.io to try checking your package on the

that something more complicated is going on.
