I am still seeing the same error on Ubuntu 20.04. My controller nodes are running with wallaby (latest). Compute nodes are still running with Victoria, to get it working properly, do we need to upgrade the compute nodes to Wallaby or it should be working before upgrading?

I think you hit the bug [1]. The fix has been merged to master and a
backport is proposed to stable/wallaby as well[2].
