I also have Catalina (version 10.15.7). My Xcode version is 12.4 and I have no Certificate Expired problems.

I have not used Xcode for a month or two on this machine, so am not sure how well my version is working, but it was certainly OK with MacPorts back then.

Maybe you need to change your version of Xcode(?). 

Caveat: Version 12 of Xcode is huge in download time, install time and disk space occupied, so tread carefully.

Cheers, Ian W.
