WG leaktest interpretation

I did sudo leaktest on WG 15.0.1.3.4 and got such a result.
I’m worried about errors , but I can’t interpret them.
Can anyone help me?
I’m too weak and beginner :frowning:

user@host:~$ sudo leaktest
leaktest: Starting leak test, hit ctrl+c to abort…
leaktest: /usr/lib/helper-scripts/leak-tests/exhaustive_ip_send.py…
Traceback (most recent call last):

inet_aton(x)
OSError: illegal IP address string passed to inet_aton

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Unfortunately, leak testing is as complicated as programming. You can not learn it overnight and you won’t find someone online, willing to teach you for free. That’s really something you have to do on your own. We continue to list and document all leak tests we are aware of, but we can not educate everyone in the depths of networking.

First:

Patrick, I respect and appreciate your work on the project.
I know that it takes a lot of energy and you don’t have time for detailed training for users, but someone could answer:
“the result is fine, nothing to worry about. These errors are false positive”
or
"here is the problem:

  1. OSError: illegal IP address string passed to inet_aton
  2. socket.gaierror: [Errno -3] Temporary failure in name resolution "

For example, here is a nice table explaining many doubts without deep education:

Secondly:

For example, whonixcheck --verbose or whonixcheck --leak-tests are cool because you don’t need deep knowledge (the green [info] indicator calms you down, the red [error] reports a problem).
sudo leaktest is frustrating.

Thirdly:

You are still invited and encouraged to do the leak tests, in fact, at the moment, there are probably not many people auditing Whonix ™ security.

I help the project as best I can, test and report the results of everything I can (Monero-GUI, rasdaemon …). I will also be making donations soon.
That is why I reported sudo leaktest results.

Can someone check the sudo leaktest command and tell me if it has the same results?
