Zenmap no longer maintained in Kali

Hello. I’ve gotten to the part of this course for Zenmap. It is no longer maintained in Kali. It’s been suggested to me to download the rpm then convert the rpm to deb with the alien command. My question to you, Nathan is–are files converted from rpm to deb easy to keep updated? Also, is Zenmap really that necessary if one has a decent training in Nmap? Thank you.

Zenmap is not necessary. It is just a GUI for nmap commands; you are fine with nmap in a terminal.
