Vanilla bridges do not work in OnionFruit vpn-style program for Windows, and on my Debian system - tor service won't start also.

In Debian 10 I've added these lines at the end of /etc/tor/torrc file:

UseBridges 1
bridge A127C4FDAD3080541EC6ACC0D8ACD704
bridge ABCDEFGHAD3080541EC6ACC0D8ACD704

Then I run sudo service tor restart And to see results sudo journalctl -exft Tor

It just stops at

Bootstrapped 20%: Asking for networkstatus consensus

As I said bridges are fine and working ones. How to make bridges work in Debian?

Everything worked after clearing cache

sudo su
cd /var/lib/tor
rm *

and rebooting afterwards
