At a guess, this is your problem.  More specifically, it looks as
though the binary was compiled on/for a system that only supports
small "something"'s (probably 32-bit inode numbers), and the repo
is on a filesystem with larger whatever-they-are's (eg. 64-bit
inode numbers).

Try getting the 1.11 source and compiling it on the server

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea.
