No. this is what you have to do.
just that the bplist is not needed to find the backup images.
In general, you have to find the backup images using the GUI ->catalog or the "bpimagelist -l -d <start backup time> -e <end backup time> -client <client name> -p <policy name>"
And then extend the expiration using the "bpexpdate -backupid <backupid> -d <new date> -force" command. -force is optional but useful.

@StefanosM - the list generated by GUI Catalog search or the bpimagelist command will only display backup images generated by that policy/client/time combination. However, it does not show that the particular database was successfully backed up during that run of the policy.
I can't go that far back in the Activity Monitor to verify that the job was successful and the particular DB was backed up, because Activity Monitor is set to keep only 7 days worth of jobs.
So, I used the bplist command to find the files in the backupage image(s) for that policy/client/duration. The files list had files with name of the DB in them. Command I used:
bplist.exe -C clientName -k policyName -t 15 -S masterFQDN -s 07/30/2021 20:00:00 -e 07/31/2021 07:00:00 -R \

OK, if you need to verify the backup first bplist is fine. You can also use opcenter to verify that all jobs ware finished ok
