I think so. See the short discussion in the CRAN Repository Policy document.
Ideally the previous maintainer would signal approval of the change to CRAN
| The new submission was rejected from CRAN with the note:
| Check: CRAN incoming feasibility, Result: NA
| Maintainer: 'Michael Hellstern <mikeh1 using uw.edu>'
| New submission
| Package was archived on CRAN
| CRAN repository db overrides:
| X-CRAN-Comment: Archived on 2021-04-08 as check problems were not
| corrected in time.
| The Date field is over a month old.
You should update the date field too.
