Brave not syncing on LinuxMint 20.3

Just installed Brave on LinuxMint Cinnamon 20.3 and even after reboot and one half hour wait, it still won’t sync. Have turned off the firewall in case that might have something to do with it.

Update: day is almost over, still nada.
Had no problems syncing Firefox and Vivaldi.
Maybe Brave is having a server issue?

Update: still nada, even on Windows 10.

Update: day 2; still no sync.

Update: day 3: still data.

Strike 3 …
