Minishift won’t start up

I am running the cmd minishift start on macOS catalina 10.15.7. I have tried several troubleshooting solutions like deletion and re-installation, and tried using different hypervisors, but it’s been hopeless. I don’t use a VPN.

I have spent the whole weekend on this an have tried almost a hundred times. It just keeps failing at that point.

Thanks in advance.
