As Jim wrote, you need to rerun zip2john for this new version of John.

It looks like you used an old copy of zip2john for this.  You need to
use zip2john from your new build, perhaps invoking it as ./zip2john when
you're in the run directory.

The new zip2john's output will include the "$zip2$" tag, not the old
"$zip$" tag you have above.
