I bet that you didn't mention the need for them to include the needed training
to maintain your skills to current environment  systems, and application levels
during your employment.
I suspect that would need at least 72 hours of commitment a day, and probably
over 50 weeks of training courses a year.

They to ensure that the specifically related ones of those courses be provided
before you are expected to employ the new techniques.

At least there was no specific need for 5 years experience using the windows
2019  environment 
- and haven't MS declared that there will be no new OS versions after windows 10
( oops 11, OK, maybe ...)? 

Maybe worth emailing the CEO, & CFO  indicating that, having been rejected you
suspect that a civil suit may be appropriate should they employ anybody who's
career does not include the full set of the required criteria.

This is what amuses me.  The job board says "If you don't have these

   Microsoft SQL networking and Multi-site replication, Always-on, mirroring,
   log shipping and data partition;

   - Experience monitoring multiple databases;
   - Advanced knowledge of database performance management and tuning
   - database fault analysis and resolution effective Database
   Backup/Recovery strategy deployment;
   - Experience performing database migrations and in-place upgrades;
   - Experience analyzing current database performance and making
   projections for future growth (CPU usage as well as storage growth);
