Zombie in my Updates - standalone qube fails but stays starred

I have a standalone qube that is flagged for an update, but won’t update. I’d like it to update, but more than anything I’d like the Update star to go away.

Its a Debian standalone qube for my printer. It isn’t normally networked. I was fooling around with updating it a couple of days ago and I guess I tripped something I don’t understand.

Updater keeps flagging it as needing an update, but always fails.
If I hook up to sys-firewall and try the terminal, I get this:

user@printer-scanner:~$ sudo apt update -y && sudo apt upgrade -y
Hit:1 https://deb.debian.org/debian buster InRelease
Hit:2 https://deb.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates InRelease          
Hit:3 https://deb.qubes-os.org/r4.0/vm buster InRelease                        
Get:4 https://deb.whonix.org buster InRelease [39.7 kB]
Reading package lists... Done       
E: Release file for https://deb.whonix.org/dists/buster/InRelease is expired (invalid since 302d 7h 12min 6s). Updates for this repository will not be applied.

At this point, I just want the Updater flag to go away. (I don’t understand what whonix has to do with anything). A proper update would be nice, but since its not network-facing I could probably live without it.

Advice wanted, please.

If there are zombies, those are your repos. You are using Qubes 4.0 which is EOL and buster too. You have to upgrade, or create new standalone based at least on bullseye

No, I’m using 4.1.

But interestingly, I copied the vm over from a backup of my old 4.0 installation.

In the meantime, can I clear the update flag?

I said 4.0 and buster repos, not Qubes OS 4.0 and Debian buster, since you missed to give that info.

Well thanks very much for your help.

You are welcome. Just replace as I said in repos with current versions and upgrade in place, or create new one, based on bullseye.
