One of my machines suddenly started behaving strangely yesterday and I have not been able to figure out the issue. I'm hoping someone else here might have some suggestions...

This is a long time running machine on the same network with my other computers, it will run several tasks, then start failing to upload or download new ones. it seems to sit in this state until I hit 'project update' in the boinc manager, then it connects, grabs a new set of workunits and crunches away. after a round (or several) of workunits, it will get hung again.

Here's a relevant section of the boinc log showing some working connections leading to the failure:

meanwhile, while the machine is in it's error state, I can access primegrid, google, etc. with a web browser no problem.
I've tried project reset, rebooting the machine a few times, and restarting boinc with no luck.

Any ideas what to try next?

I had a machine that refused to get ANY tasks at all, I went thru the same steps you did but what fixed it was removing PG and then reloading it in Boinc, now it works just fine.

Thanks for the suggestion, Mikey -- but that alone didn't do the trick in my case...

for the sake of documenting the issue:

-- I tried detaching from primegrid and reattached to the project. I quickly ran into the exact same issue

-- I uninstalled boinc, deleted the boinc data directory, re-installed, and re-attached to PG. Again, ran into the same issue -- but this time, while re-downloading boinc, I suddenly lost access to the boinc download site... hmm - I have a theory....

-- My ISP is verizon fios, and I use their phone app to control my kid's internet access. In the app, I can turn off 'network protection' completely -- as soon as I did that, boom -- everything worked. I triple checked to make sure this computer was not in any restricted group and there were no firewall rules specific to the machine. the machine was in the 'default' access group which has no specific restrictions. As a test, I created a 'open access' group that specifically disabled all restrictions and put all my crunching machines in there, then I turned the protection service back on... I'm guessing that somewhere my router decided that primegrid was trying to hack just one of the many computers it's talking to on my network.

I'll give it some time and update if that happened to work
