First, there is no Tor 0.2.25 version.

But second, assuming you mean some old version, you should upgrade.

Depending on which relay you are (I think you didn't say?), this
might have happened because you got the Guard flag:

I'm pretty much convinced at this point that trying to run a Tor relay
on tiny hardware like this is not a workable idea. You could be a bridge:
but I agree that's less fun.
