So I restarted today my Geth node and is repeating this:

INFO [08-07|14:40:34.090] Looking for peers ----------------------- peercount=2 tried=30 static=0

I checked in the Geth console a couple of things. First I tried admin.peers and the result was an array of 10 nodes (not 2 as it says in the log message, I don't understand why).

Then I tried checking eth.blockNumber and this is the most strange thing, I got a value of 12964999, exactly the last block before the London fork. This makes me think I should initialize Geth with some sort of parameter? I've been waiting for a couple of hours and is not able to find more than 2 peers. This is how I'm currently initializing Geth:

geth --syncmode=fast --cache=58000 --ws --ws.port 8181 --ws.api "eth,net,web3,txpool" --txpool.globalslots 512 --txpool.accountqueue 0 --txpool.globalqueue 0

SOLVED: Apparently I had to upgrade Geth to the latest version 1.10.6
