Xtrabckup error after update mysql to version 8.0.30: File ./ib_logfile0: 'open' returned OS error 71. Cannot continue operation

Someone from the team left the server network free and the ubuntu packages were automatically updated at dawn. Now xtrabackup 8.0.29 is not working with mysql 8.0.30 even with --no-server-version-check=1 parameter. It’s showing the error:

Xtrabackup 8.0.29 is not compatible with MySQL 8.0.30 . We are still working on a new release to merge 8.0.30 changes and make it compatible but we are still on the early stages of understanding those changes. For now I would suggest to rollback to 8.0.29 or using logical backup.
