I have set up two RPi 1 B+ units with today's version of Raspian (Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)) and the available BOINC version (7.14.2); neither are receiving tasks. The root file systems have been expanded to provide space for work (64Gb / 128Gb respectively). Both are attached to the project correctly as indicated by --get_project_urls.

--get_simple_gui_info yields the following:

Any idea as to why these units are not receiving tasks?

Because there are none as Seti is no longer producing new work. Check the news on the main page for further details.

Outstanding! At least it might not be my devices! I still have lots of WUs on other machines still working so I suppose I will start looking for other opportunities! Thank you!
