Local and federated timelines are stuck for only one user #8824
Hello! I'm the admin for social.illegalpornography.com. I was on the cutting edge master branch release for a while, but this problem turned up after I went back to v2.5.0, which is what I'm currently running. I've tried restarting Docker a couple times, and also run the mastodon:feeds:clear_all and mastodon:feeds:build rake tasks. These didn't help.
The local timeline hasn't updated all day, and is showing me incredibly old posts. If I make a post, it will briefly show up in in the local timeline before disappearing on the next refresh. I see this issue in the desktop web interface, the mobile web interface, and Tusky. This only happens on my account on this instance. The left image below is what I see on the bugged account, the one on the right is what I see from a different, non-bugged account on the same instance.
The federated timeline is similar, except there's a slow trickle of posts that reach the bugged account. Is there anything I can do to fix this?
the nastodon:feeds tasks only generate the Home timeline for individual users. since the local timeline is theoretically identical for all users, it's generated directly from the database and not stored in redis. you've said this bug is consistent accross all platforms? can you give some screenshots from a different client?…

The same situation is happening on another instance that I manage where the Local Timeline doesn't update for a single user, all other users report no problems and that same user created a new test account and the issue is not present on the test account. So, the problem doesn't look to be on their end but after looking into everything I could think of I found nothing wrong.
Also the same situation where when a toot is posted from the problematic account it briefly shows up on the home timeline and then vanishes was reported.
I spoke with @Kansattica and the issue is also still present on the account that started this issue.
