Error while running a restore

ERROR: invalid input syntax for type timestamp with time zone: "202"

Restore Command (I use docker but that isn’t the problem)

zcat ${RECOVERY_FILE} | docker run --env PGPASSWORD -i --rm \
    postgres:14.5 psql -d ${DB_NAME} \
    -h ${DB_HOST} -p ${DB_PORT} -U ${DB_USER}


Corrupt backup file. Rerun backup

Backup Command

docker run --env PGPASSWORD --rm \
    postgres:14.5 pg_dump --clean -d ${DB_NAME} -h ${DB_HOST} \
    -p ${DB_PORT} -U ${DB_USER} | gzip > ${BACKUP_TO}
