Can you see how many guard fingerprints are mentioned in your state file? Also what is your setup (i.e. Tor Browser? or something else??)?

It is normal for tor to change guards if your guards go down.
Tor will try a few guards, but keep retrying the ones that are down.

Have you changed the configuration in any way?

I don't think this is a bug.
It's likely due to the extra network load recently,
