Briefly, this error occurs when a part of the Elasticsearch cluster is shut down. This could be due to a manual shutdown command, a node failure, or a network issue. To resolve this, you can restart the shut down nodes if they were manually shut down. If it’s a node failure, check the node’s logs to identify the issue and fix it.
