Skyline sudo vulnerability - CVE-2021-3156

Recently I've doing some security reviews in my environment and I saw that skyline servers are using sudo 1.8.30, even after the last update on Feb 9th, Skyline still using a vulnerable sudo version.

Current version: Sudoers I/O plugin version 1.8.30

I did some tests trying to manually upgrade sudo using the following KB, but it is reporting (64bits), and forcing the upgrade with --nodeps, but it crashed sudo.

After rollback the package installation, it is working fine, but I would like to know if someone has a solution to proceed upgrading sudo for the Skyline servers.
