The patch is created for the maint branch.
I have reordered some part of the quoted message.

org-agenda.el (and some other files) should be fixed anyway.
Compiling single /home/ubuntu/org-mode/lisp/org-agenda.el...
In end of data:
org-agenda.el:10769:1:Warning: the function ‘string-empty-p’ is not known to
(log for emacs-25.2.2)

I just do not have enough experience with elisp to suggest a patch to
explicitly notify users that they have mixed org install. On the other
hand, particular symptom from the report can be easily mitigated.

There is the only place in org where `string-empty-p' is used. There is
no (require 'subr-x) in org-agenda.el. Notice
lisp/org.el:10: ;; Package-Requires: ((emacs "24.3"))
Till this line is updated, I suppose, patches should respect it,
especially for the maint branch. Unfortunately new org cite feature
recently merged to master relies on some rx features unavailable even in
Emacs-26.3 (Ubuntu-20.04 LTS focal).

It seems, RedHat-7 and thus CentOS-7 were released with Emacs-24.3. I
have no idea how many users run these flavors on desktops and are
permitted to update Org to the latest version. Accordingly to
end of lifetime dates for CentOS-7 are 2020-08-06 for full updates and
2024-06-30 for maintenance updates.
