This is indeed invalid rpm version - is separator between version and
release and it is not allowed in either of them. It used to be warning
for ages and now is an error.

See upstream commit:

If I'm reading it correctly, it should be possible to workaround this
by defining %_wrong_version_format_terminate_build to 0.

Anwyay, no, we're not going to diverge from upstream in this.
