No, it is not an known issue. I tried 20.11 master and could not encounter the described behavior.

To tackle your issue you may either try

a) to get serial output of the machine - potentially the log messages tell us the reason. If you have a Intel AMT capable machine, [0] helps to setup everything.
b) use the report_dump mechanism [1], to write the log messages to the USB stick during boot instead via serial line.
c) use git bisect between 20.08 to 20.11 to find the offending commit.

If you need further help or information with one of the steps please ask.
