No, not the general "no entry" sign.
But in some countries it will have a red diagonal, in others a red
horizontal bar, along with icons of what is specifically forbidden,
e.g. no pedestrians, no mcs, no trucks, no cars.
For an APRS icon, a red ring filled with white (or almost-white, if
white is transparent) would do to indicate a blocked road. (Not to
indicate a landslide as such.)
