Hi John,

I'm no Sculpt expert and probably you will receive more comprehensive
answer later but:

This number seems to come from repos/gems/run/ There was no
published Sculpt release with that revision and according to news
section on the last one was 20.08.

genodelabs depot index files are at and there's no index file for
version 20.09.

You can try to change version number in and maybe you will
have luck that it will work but I would assume that Christian Helmut did
not made this change by accident and there are some incompatibilities

I think that if you really want latest version you may have to compile
software by yourself.

I hope this will help you.
