onion service name must be 16 characters long - can't reach Whonix onion repository

SOCKS proxy socks5h://localhost:9050 could not connect to
deb.dds6qkxpwdeubwucdiaord2xgbbeyds25rbsgr73tbfpqpt4a6vjwsyd.onion
(0.0.0.0:0) due to: Invalid hostname: onion service name must be 16
characters long (1)

Got this reported privately. Haven’t seen this before. Did anyone ever see this before?

apt-transport-tor might have a bug not being compatible with sub domains (deb.)?

A 16-character onion address is a ‘v2’ (legacy) onion service e.g kkkkkkkkkk63ava6.onion

It implies the user is not using a version of Tor compatible with the longer v3 (prop224) addresses/protocol.
