DROP DATABASE permission denied in database 'master'

I’m getting a permissions error when the job runs. The login I’m using has database owner permissions on the master and all individual databases. We started receiving this error after upgrading to latest version 12.2.9.

Snippet from log (actual db and server names have been replaced with XXXXXXX:

Have you tried assigning the dbmanager role to the account on the master database?
