The problem could be quite far away.  Such as for some reason the
firewall rules being reloaded at the top of every hour and for just a
very short time hourly it could be blocking packets.

Try disabling cron and/or systemd-timerd (I think on Ubuntu?) and see
if things magically work at the top of the hour?  If so then it is
something happening via those other periodic tasks.
