### Unable to parse Giac output error

Sagemath 8.9

Why does sagemath return this error here?

sage: var('x')
x
sage: integrate((1-2*x^(1/3))^(3/4)/x,x, algorithm="giac")

The error is similar to one in this bug report from 3 years ago https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/22997 but that is for unresolved integral while here Giac is able to solve it.

Here is the same thing using giac directly on same computer

Any suggestions what is going on?
