My first thought is that you're running on some bsd platform, and you
use libressl, and you've upgraded your libressl and got bit by the
libressl bug:

But if that's not it, the next step is to try to figure out whether it's
still running, and if so whether it's still publishing new descriptors
(check the logs), and if so whether it's actually reachable (try using
your bridge line yourself from a Tor Browser on a different machine).

And if none of those work, the tor-relays@ list might provide more tips.

Good luck!
