I'm sorry.
I disagree.
This is a question about reproducible code.
So, I don't see why it should be considered off topic.

Either a different version of R, a difference in the forecast package, a
difference in one of it's imports (which there are many), or different
If you're sure the input is the same, then it must be one of the other

I suggest reading the documentation for the relevant forecast package

The auto.arima() function alone has many arguments.
Changing their values may produce a more desirable model.
