I am running High Sierra on a late 2009 iMac 3.06 GHz Core 2 Duo with 16GB of RAM.
For a long time now I have not been able to connect to iCloud on this machine. It’s not a game-breaker, but it is a pain not having access to my Keychain, and having to go to one of my other devices to find passwords, etc.
If I boot in Safe Mode the machine will allow me to connect to iCloud, but when I switch back to normal mode it just gives me the same old message about not being able to connect to iCloud right now, and that I should try again later.
Does anyone have any ideas?

It doesn’t seem like your issue is related to Apple’s System Status because otherwise it would’ve been resolved sooner or later on its own. However, it doesn’t hurt to check every now and then – follow this link to see if all of Apple’s services are up and running smoothly.
If everything seems to be alright with that, you can try a few other things. I don’t know what exact error you’re seeing, but here are the most common solutions:
You may see “This Mac can’t connect to iCloud” or “An unknown error occurred” status, or a frozen panel. Start by quitting all iCloud apps and restarting your computer. Then try to log in to your iCloud account again.
Alternatively, you can try removing iCloud configuration files. Backup your Mac, then go to Finder → Go → Go to Folder. Enter:
Copy the files from this location into a different folder, then remove them from the current location. Now you can restart your Mac and attempt logging in to iCloud again.
Let me know if it helps!
