even while the issue obviously is not caused by yay, you anyway
shouldn't use an AUR helper, to install a package, neither from AUR,
nor from Extra or any other repository, at least not when reporting
bugs or asking for help. Assuming you are using Arch Linux (and not
Manjaro) and assuming the dependency should be from Arch's Extra
repository, use the official tool pacman to refresh the sync database,
update all packages and to install the package, before sending a
request to an Arch mailing list.

This is the culprit. Even if not related to an issue caused by using an
AUR helper or probably a third party repositories, an install
maintained by using an AUR helper and maybe Manjaro repositories might
cause pitfalls, that could render help from this mailing list useless.
