Perhaps you have some old version of the Python libraries for Open
vSwitch installed somewhere?  In older versions of OVS, the function in
question did have fewer arguments.

I don't know why a system installation of a Python library would
override the version in the OVS tree.  Probably need help from a Python
expert on that.
