I'm having a issue with my node. I'm running it on a 2017 mba, and randomly it'll get stuck on a stale tip and apparently can't find the active branch, as it'll try for hours until manually restarted. The most i can figure out is it fails to connect to a peer and then just stops trying? Relevant logs are attached below system info.

Edit: Also seems to hang on exit, and it even logs stale tip messages. pkill -9 doesnt kill it either, only a reboot will.

The cause of the issue seems to have been my vpn, after disabling it my node stopped getting stuck.
