This article intends to address the error message on macOS Monterey which reads '"____" needs to be updated'.
Prompts like the below will be presented in macOS Monterey when "/usr/bin/python" or just "python" is called.

An updated Extension Attribute for macOS Monterey which calls /bin/bash, was released the day of macOS Monterey's release to organisations with an Auto-Update subscription.

If you have not received this updated Extension Attribute, please raise a new support ticket here.
