What is the history of your nginx install?

Where did this /usr/lib/systemd/system/nginx.service come from?

This shows:

>   ExecStop=/bin/sh -c /bin/kill -s TERM $(/bin/cat
> /var/run/ (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

and TERM is probably not the best signal to say "please close down
uses QUIT.

Your (lack of) nginx -V output makes me think that you are running a
random third party module that is not exiting cleanly.

I don't know if you can see any pattern in your access.log for the request
that was handled just before your nginx stopped responding? That might
help make a reproduction case, which might in turn help isolate where
the problem is.

Good luck with it,
