On debian 9, 10 and 11, the tor deamon is started and managed by systemd by 
default. With the option 'Restart=on-failure'
Is the tor service really down?
~$ sudo systemctl status tor

If the tor service is terminated by something, you can find out why this is 
happening in the logs. Reading the log files carefully is always the first thing 
to do in the event of errors on UNIX systems.
~$ cat /var/log/tor/notices.log

╰_╯ Ciao Marco!

It's free software and it gives you freedom!
