You have to connect bump to standard_surface (Geometry > Normal)

https://support.solidangle.com/x/AIR2Ag
Bump shaders: bump2d and bump3d now output a normal vector that can be linked to new normal parameters in ambocc, lambert, standard_surface and utility shaders. These bump shaders no longer function as passthrough shaders.
