UpdateInTerminal - incorrect marking as orphaned

EOS UpdateInTerminal shows:

AUR Update-Check:
:: Searching AUR for updates...
 -> Orphaned AUR Packages:  wineasio

but it’s not marked as orphaned
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/wineasio

what does yay say?

Perhaps, the site feels like it received an update recently.

UpdateInTerminal uses an AUR helper. By default it is yay.
The message comes from the AUR helper.

thank you guys!
so I will wait a few days for a status update

A packaged is orphaned when it doesn’t have a maintainer. If you look at your link, you will see there is no maintainer.

As a side note, when an AUR package moves from being orphaned to having a new maintainer is the point of greatest risk for an AUR package. Be sure to review the PKGBUILD diff if someone new picks it up.
