For reasons that are unclear to me, the list of akonadi resources that I find in "systemsettings/personal information" sometimes lists my CalDAV calendar and CardDAV addressbook as "offline". I do not know how to switch them back to "online". I can access the calendar without problems using lightning/thunderbird.
As I need to rely on my calendar, this renders KDE-PIM useless to me. I am sorry that I have to revert back to thunderbird for now.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into account
2. Open KDE Systemsettings to check akonadi status
Resource is "offline"
Resource should be "Ready"
When you start "akonadiconsole", do you see some error message for that resource ?
In this you can toggle it to online again via the right-click popup menu.
Also when you select "update" in the calendar manager side-view in korganizer it should ask you "make it online ?"

Thanks for coming back to this. As a matter of fact, akonadi/kdepim
turned out to be so unreliable for me that I could not use it any
longer for my work. After staying with KDE for many, many years (and
actively contributing to it in the past) I regretfully deleted
everything KDE from my computers and switched to Gnome and
Thunderbird, which has been working perfectly fine since.
I do remember though, that I tried the steps that you describe, and
none of that made the calender online. Also, there was no error
message. The only thing that worked for me was to remove all PIM
sources, add them again, and use them for a couple of weeks until the
problem showed again.

The original cause of the bug has been fixed since. Closing, but feel free to add any comment to existing bugs still open (I'm thinking about bug #335090) in particular).
