Sync agent is currently offline

Description of the issue:

I have tried for several weeks to start a sync chain between my iPhone and Mac. I used to have a functioning one and don’t know what happened.

Anyway, I keep getting the message when I select “start new sync chain” on my iPhone: sync agent is currently offline or not reachable. Please try again later.

As far as I can tell the sync agent isn’t anything I have control over. Am I missing a step?
