Yep, this is exactly the problem mentioned in the README on melpa (which
I'm guessing is where you installed notmuch from). You need to use a
version of the notmuch CLI that is as new as as your version of
notmuch-emacs, or an older version of notmuch-emacs. Normally I would
recommend using the notmuch-emacs package from your distro, but I
couldn't figure out if it exists in solus.

If you have the appropriate version of the source, then "make elpa" will
create package you can install in emacs

    M-x package-install-file <return>
    notmuch-0.31.4.tar <return>

should work. If you're stuck, I can make such an elpa package for you.
