I can't seem to get the input format for the date time conversion that works with data formatted as shown below
'Sat Jan 30 03:05:15 +0000 2021'
ive tried
'eeee MMMM d HH:mm:ss Z y'
but still nothing

The trick for me was having to specify a time zone. I'm not sure what timezone it should be so I selected UTC. I found the format section of the datetime documentation page helpful in getting the input format correct.
d='Sat Jan 30 03:05:15 +0000 2021';
D = datetime(d,"InputFormat","eee MMM dd HH:mm:ss Z yyyy","TimeZone","UTC")
D = datetime
