Tap on that message and fill in your details again, then try to connect again. Might work, I have to go that route for Einstein.
Seems to happen when it's making contact with the project the first time to not be able to connect due to the outdated certificates.

(Also play with your nickname, all lower case, or all upper case. )

LHC has no WUs for android as far as I know.
I've never had any on my Android 6, 7, 9, and 10 devices.
Best is to choose another project for your device.
Also, don't run Boinc on a phone you still need. The load will definitely destroy the battery over time.
I myself run them on TV boxes (no battery), and 2 old cellphones that already have a blown battery (screen pops out).

LHC Android applications:

SixTrack
Android running on aarch64 502.05 (android) (beta test) 17 Mar 2020, 16:19:35 UTC 7 GigaFLOPS

sixtracktest (beta test)
Android running on aarch64 502.05 (beta test) 10 May 2019, 9:06:28 UTC 2 GigaFLOPS

Both no work atm.
But what Jord tells: connection fails because of 'certificates outdated problem' with the BOINC play store package v 7.4.53
