That isn't provided.. that is a private copy that chrome bundles
itself to use. It may or may not have all of the library calls in it
(the chrome upstream may only turn on things it knows it wants), and
it may have changes which the team doesn't expect.

Also teams is looking for `rpm -q --whatprovides
'libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.20)(64bit)'` and you typed
`rpm -q --whatprovides 'libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.22)(64bit)'`

Basically Microsoft teams will need to bundle this newer version of
glibc they are using to make your software work.

time to reboot.
