Photos app is not syncing to iCloud. I stopped Avast, as it was blocking it. Now, however, I'm getting several other logs when I search Console.app for cloudphotos

In order of appearance upon launch of Photos.app:

Unable to get cached status information configuration client state 2

(several of this one)

I am behind a VPN but have tried it without VPN enabled as well (no VPN on router either).
