Program is flagging an error on Recover Rebate Credit Worksheet Line 19

I am completing taxes for my mother who passed away 8/18/2020.  She received the 1st stimulus check in May 2020 when she was still alive.  She did not receive the 2nd payment which I think is correct, however the program is flagging Line 19 of the Recovery Rebate Credit Worksheet as an error.    How should I handle this error?

Actually, if your mother passed in 2020, she is eligible for both payments. Review your answers in this section now knowing she is eligible.

Thank you very much for your response. It has helped me tremendously and also educated me to more that I need to learn about filing my moms final tax return.
