Cannot mount outdated TM backup sparsebundle on Apple Time Capsule


I’ve an outdated ATC (Apple Time capsule) – which used to backup my Mac Mini and my MacAir. The Mac Mini has now died, however I needed to retrieve some information from the sparsebundle. Sadly, I can not get it to mount. I can learn the bundle contents although, and the file dimension reveals 113.4GB.

I attempted to hdiutil connect <>.sparsebundle -nomount -readwrite -noverify -noautofsck after which I ran fsck_hfs -dy /dev/disk4 and the output of which was as follows (word no partition scheme/info in hdiutil):

/dev/disk4                                              
pleasure@Pleasure-Nandis-MacAir ~ % fsck_hfs -dy /dev/disk4

Could I please get some options on the way to repair and mount this sparsebundle?
