Fdroid crashes when downloading app list from archive repos, and other problems

I have a ICS tablet, and I have to use the archives on many things. I also use them on a newer Nougat phone to download the csipsimple app, which is the only sip app on f-droid that receives as well as places phone calls. Lately, f-droid on my old ics tablet has started crashing when retrieving the app list from the archives. On my Phone, I can no longer download csipsimple for some reason. I think there is something wrong with the archive repo.

Logcat of the errors?

How should I do that?

If you have root use a Logcat app from F-Droid

If not search online for “android adb logcat”, you’ll need a PC and an USB cable to begin with
