one time popup notification of Whonix 15 deprecation once Whonix 16 was released

Once Whonix 16 gets released, there should be a final package upgrade notifying users that Whonix 15 has been deprecated with a link to the wiki with upgrade information.

A one time popup can be used:
Do not show this message again. - Generic One Time Popup

Also Systemcheck - Whonix should point that out.

I need to keep re-signing (vaild-until field) the Whonix buster APT repository to allow late users to fetch the last upgrade.

This ticket serves as a reminder for that.

Once this is done, this ticket can be modified/rolled to the next major Whonix release upgrade version.
