Socks5() connect to ... failed: general failure

Hi there,

I already had this problem about 10 days ago. Now it happend for the second time. It went like this:
The node cant be reached via umbrel.local on Chrome anymore and apps are not reachable (thats the browser i have the mempool app and the umbrel site always open on)
When I open the same links in another browser I’m able to login/show the mempool. But it seems to have gotten stuck some hours ago. The node shows 0 peers.

If I produce the logs the following is listed under Bitcoin Core logs:

The Tor logs show the following:

tor                  | Jun 10 17:22:18.000 [notice] Tried for 120 seconds to get a connection to [scrubbed]:9735. Giving up. (waiting for circuit)
tor                  | Jun 10 17:22:36.000 [warn] Failed to find node for hop #1 of our path. Discarding this circuit.

Any ideas how to fix that? Sure rebooting seems to fix it, but thats no long time solution.
Is Tor simply down for everyone?

Thank you! :grin:
