Cisco warns VMware vCenter bug puts hyperconverged tin in ‘unrecoverable’ state

"Except, of course, for the fact that the bug is rather hard to encounter since the buggy software is not compatible with Hyperflex in the first place, so I'd guess it's a bit difficult to encounter it."

They didn't say it's not compatible, they said it's not supported. (Of course, in this case it's REALLY not compatible.) It's very common for these enterprise products to support 1-2 versions of some dependency; just like normal software, sometimes it's very picky and really does need that version, usually they just don't want the support burden (for example, for both Java and Node.js, software will probably support Java 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, but they'd probably support a version or two even though it works with the rest.)
