Geth v1.10.22 shipped with a serious bug that makes the database unusable.

As stated in the release notes:
To ensure that your node has all the data, please rewind your local chain to a
block before you updated (if unsure, just pick a block before the release time)
with debug.setHead("0xblock-number-in-hex") via the Geth console (on IPC), or
debug_setHead via JSON RPC (you might need to temporarilly expose the debug
namespace to do that). The brute force alternative of course is to resync after
an update, which you can do by deleting your chaindata folder (but please leave
the ancient folder within to keep the blocks).

Geth v1.10.23 is a hotfix release for a pruning regression that was introduced
in v1.10.22. For technical details on the bug.
