Not seeing any planes

I got the email about not reporting and my stats do say the same thing. My logs look clean and figured with the coronavirus my stats are starting to reflect what is occurring.
The “Near By Sites” does report some data, so could the issue be with the location of my antenna I should just accept what is occuring?

Your device seem to be in trouble since three days.
As you have received some aircraft over the day it’s very likely that your device stopped working.

Is your local web interface reachable? Any aircraft here?
If yes, what are your details showing in your FA profile (use the gear icon) to verify the uploads)
Did you try rebooting it?

The logs are showing no errors, it is showing it is showing the message “no new messages in 3807 seconds…restart everything just in case…” restarts and gives the zero messages received.

I’ll try the checking connections and restart the RPi.

I checked all the connections and they were good. I booted up the RaspberryPi, it is showing the “arrow” for low power (will work on that one).

When doing the piaware-status command, it did get a message:

dump1090 is NOT producing data on localhost:30005

I’m wondering if that might be the problem.

what does sudo systemctl status dump1090-fa deliver?

I googled the message and found someone who had the issue (https://discussions.flightaware.com/t/piaware-skyview-page-works-but-not-displaying-any-aircraft/43882/8) and so I used another power adapter I had and the output

$ sudo systemctl status dump1090-fa

It is now showing planes! Thank you for your help.
