You can view the directory authorities' consensus votes at
<https://consensus-health.torproject.org/>. As you can see, gabelmoo,
moria1, tor26, and urras don't consider your relay "Running".

Directory authorities determine if a relay is running by trying to open
a TLS connection to the relay. As a first step in your investigation,
maybe try to connect to these directory authorities from your relay
(e.g. by downloading the consensus file from
/tor/status-vote/current/consensus), and see if that gives any hints.
