I’ve been having an issue with one of my repeater systems, running Allstar on a Pi. The Pi runs fine and the repeaters run fine for a few days and then, I find the heartbeat LEDs (on two fobs) blinking either slowly or really fast. The repeaters are unusable at this point.
I can still SSH into the Pi - CPU usage, ‘disk’ space availability, memory usage / free space all looks good. If I reboot the Pi, everything resets and is good for another few days and then the same thing. Thinking that this may be a power supply issue, I have tried half a dozen power supplies now (5V, 3A).
In desparation, I did an apt-update / upgrade earlier today… and of course, now Asterisk will not even start (no surprise there ;).
Here are the last few lines when I try to run asterisk from the command line:

I do have everything backed up… so I could blow the SD card away and start over - but the Pi image is dated 2018, so thought I’d ask here to see if I can recover from here.
Any ideas or steps on how to resolve?
