`CURL_OPENSSL_3' not found

Out of the blue i got the following error from one of my CRON jobs

/usr/local/php73/bin/php: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.4: version `CURL_OPENSSL_3’ not found (required by /usr/local/php73/bin/php)

I have a Nextcloud CRON and one for PreviewGenerator. I run Nextcloud 20.0.1 in a shared hosting environment. To my knowledge nothing has changed in my installation and this CRON error was out of the blue. I’ve asked the hosting provider if anything changed on their end (not heard back yet) but they are normally good about notifying about changes/updates

Any ideas?

To answer my own post. Since this happened only once the theory is the cron job ran exactly at the time when the hosting service performed a Debian OS upgrade, and this was the reason for the error.
