Section 3.1. says:

     version  The version of the resource being returned.  This value
         must be the same as the entity-tag (ETag) HTTP response header
         (see Sections 2.1 and 2.3 of [RFC7232]).  This attribute has
         "caseExact" as "true".  Service provider support for this
         attribute is optional and subject to the service provider's
         support for versioning (see Section 3.14 of [RFC7644]).  If a
         service provider provides "version" (entity-tag) for a
         representation and the generation of that entity-tag does not
         satisfy all of the characteristics of a strong validator (see
         Section 2.1 of [RFC7232]), then the origin server MUST mark the
         "version" (entity-tag) as weak by prefixing its opaque value
         with "W/" (case sensitive).

It should say:

     version  The version of the resource being returned.  This value
         must be the same as the entity-tag (ETag) HTTP response header
         (see Sections 2.1 and 2.3 of [RFC7232]).  This attribute has
         "caseExact" as "true".  Service provider support for this
         attribute is optional and subject to the service provider's
         support for versioning (see Section 3.14 of [RFC7644]).  If a
         service provider provides "version" (entity-tag) for a
         representation and the generation of that entity-tag does not
         satisfy all of the characteristics of a strong validator (see
         Section 2.1 of [RFC7232]), then the origin server MUST mark the
         "version" (entity-tag) as weak by prefixing its opaque value
         with "W/" (case sensitive).

Notes:

In the original text, the hyperlinks applied to "2.1" and "2.3" incorrectly link to those sections in RFC 7643, whereas they should link to those sections in RFC 7232.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
Errata reports are for errors in the canonical version, which, for these RFCs, are the plain text versions. HTML renderings that include heuristically-generated links aren't covered by the errata system.
