Hi! This is the Trac system for reporting bugs in the WordPress.org site, and not WordPress core.

For WordPress core, you should report bugs to https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ and for support, https://wordpress.org/support/.

In this case however, it's likely that it's not a bug at all. It's entirely possible that the PHP cli version is updated, but the web server is using a different outdated version of PHP. You'll need to check your php-fpm version, which can usually be changed from your hosting configuration panel. You can usually use php-fpm --version to check the FPM version installed, but that's not always the PHP installation in use by the server (depending on configuration)
