Please try it with snap https://snapcraft.io/minetest
You need to install snap and online you can find a tutorial how.

Are you running Raspbian?

If you can't find an updated binary for your distribution, you can indeed use something just as flatpak or a snap to sidestep this problem with your distribution. There are likely other ways to workaround this without using these types of software, but will be more dependent on your distribution's sources.

https://flathub.org/apps/details/net.minetest.Minetest

These are somewhat new concepts in Linux distributions, essentially these types of packages are somewhat sandboxed/container applications that come bundled with their own dependencies. I've ran a few games using these types of applications and didn't have any problems.

However, Neither flathub nor snap prohibit non-free software. The non-free and free licensed software are mixed together in results and pages in these repositories and I haven't seen any filtering options yet. So just keep in mind that you are more likely to install non-free or proprietary programs using these sources.
