This is a guess, since I don’t use the tool: Although it says that the primary remote repo is our Github mirror, it’s actually reporting status on your local repo, and that repo has master pointed at remotes/origin/2.4 instead of remotes/origin/master.
That’s based on “Release 2.4.15” being the HEAD commit of the 2.4 branch, which is no longer being worked on.

How you managed to get there I can’t say. The fix is most likely to delete the master branch and recreate it to track remotes/origin/master, but I can’t tell you how to do so in Github for Mac; you’ll have to RTFM or contact Github support for that.
