I have no error from Apparmor and I dont believe obfs4 proxy is the issue as I have obfs4 installed and confirmed running
dpkg -l | grep obfs4
ii obfs4proxy 0.0.7-4
ps ax | grep obfs4
5501 ? Sl 0:01 /usr/bin/obfs4proxy
netstat -nap | grep obfs4

What am I missing ?
Probably because obfs4 is not installed or not running properly.
Check your logs for obfs4 errors, and for Apparmor error messages as well.

I have been up and running with my Tor Bridge for a number of months now, yet Tor Metrics reports that the Bridge Distribution Mechanism for my server is stuck on ‘none’.
Consequently I see no incoming connections to my Bridge.
I have tried altering the following
with no success.
The mechanism is always none…and I have left the changes for a week to see if Metrics updates to no avail.
I have a static IPv4 address and functional IPv6 and have confirmed my ports are publicly accessible for both protocols

I am running raspberry pi os buster which had an obsolete Tor version.
I subsequently upgraded and stay up to date with the latest bullseye version via bullseye backports,
Currently Tor 0.4.6.10-1~bpo10+1
Any ideas of why my servers Bridge Distribution Mechanism is always reported and behaving as none ?
Thanks in advance
