Perhaps you've already found out for yourself, but the changelog (https://
gitlab.freedesktop.org/pipewire/pipewire/-/releases) mentions the following:

  "Remove the pw-cli dump command. It is mostly implemented as part of
wpctl status, pw-dump, pw-link, pw-top and others."

Perhaps one, or a combination, of the above will suffice as a replacement?
