This error should be related to the back-end process. Does the problem
persists even after restarting Emacs? I face this issue with some IMAP
servers but not always. This is could be due to unreliable network. Due
to which the back-end process goes into stale state.

I have just the below setting in my config. And it is working fine.

(setq gnus-select-method '(nntp "")) ; news

Could you please try removing the other params from your configuration
if the previously mentioned restart also doesn’t fix the issue.

I know "restart" is too much for an Emacs user. But I am just trying to
pin-point the cause.
