This morning I upgraded 8 controllers (1 master, 7 local) to version 188.8.131.52 of ArubaOS. Everything recovered just fine except for one local controller did not regain control of any of its APs. The controller appears to be just sitting idle. I have reloaded it twice more with no improvement.
I also see this as one of the last messages in the logs:
Feb 23 07:57:07 stm: <304001> <ERRS> |stm| Unexpected stm (Station management) runtime error at data_path_handler, 633, data_path_handler: recv - Network is down
I am on the CLI via SSH so I know that the network is not actually down. Nothing was changed config wise.

I just fixed the problem by causing VRRP to change states. The local controller is master again and has its APs back.
Is there an easy command to manually failover vrrp?
Since the local had a higher priority, it took over as I intended.
Then I removed the preempt command "no preempt", as to keep the configuration consistent across our devices.

You can manually shutdown the VRRP.
(config) #vrrp 1
If you shutdown the VRRP, the virtual Ip address will failover to the standby controller and vice versa
