Kube-controller-manager dying in regular intervals

Cluster information:

Kubernetes version: 1.20.1
Cloud being used: Run on my on bare metal (raspberry pis)
Installation method: kubeadm
Host OS: Raspian/Debian 10 Buster
CNI and version: weave 2.6.5
CRI and version: docker 20.10 (also tried pure containerd 1.4.3 same result)

kubeadm init runs through and afterwards the cni deployment can be run. However in regular intervals the controller-manager container dies and seems to be restarted.
I took the logs and found this:

Also kube-apiserver is restarted. I am not sure who is responsible for this. This even happens if I leave that node alone after kubeadm init. Is this a known bug?
