Previously my geth node was working totally fine but due to some reason I had to restart the node. so I followed this commands: sudo kill -INT <GETH_PID>. Then restarted it with the folowing command:

nohup geth --syncmode "fast" --http --http.api "personal,eth,network,web3,net,db" --ipcpath "/home/ubuntu/ethereum/datadir//geth.ipc" --cache=20480 --ws --ws.api "personal,eth,network,web3,net,db" --ws.origins "*" &

but after restarting geth node is stuck at previously synced block 12964999 and its not updating to latest block. and eth.syncing is returning false.

Below is log after restarting geth node:

The block 12964999 is the last block you can download without upgrading to EIP 1559. After block 12_965_000 we have forked to a new feature list which you can find out on the internet for more details.

MainnetChainConfig = &ChainConfig{
    ChainID:             big.NewInt(1),
    ....
    LondonBlock:         big.NewInt(12_965_000),
    ....
}

you have to upgrade to geth 1.10.6
