There are two ">>" at the end of the General::obspkg warning message.
If you click on it, it will take it you the Compatibility Guide, which
mentions:

The functionality of RotateShape, TranslateShape, AffineShape is
provided by the newly added kernel functions Rotate, Translate, Scale
and GeometricTransformation.
Sphere and Cylinder are available as the new built-in kernel functions
Sphere and Cylinder.
Torus and MoebiusStrip are available in the kernel function
ExampleData.
