Well there's not much to go on here so you're going to have to provide more
detail ...

Does the system lose all ipv6 connectivity (is the fe80:: address
uncontactable for instance)

Does ip addr sh still show the expected global IPv6 address and it's just
not responding?

Are you using a static ipv6, dhcp ipv6 or SLAAC ipv6 configuration?

Does nmcli c sh <conn-name> still have NM thinking there is an address or
does that show it as gone as well?

Start with those in mind as initial questions for diagnostics...
