 Hi @ceceet! Welcome to Trac and thanks for opening this ticket.

 Some additional info:
 - The UpdraftCentral plugin calls `wp_get_current_user()` in a `shutdown`
 - See [https://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/updraftcentral/trunk
 /site-management.php#L484 here for the call] and
 management.php#L136here for the hook].
 - This has existed within the plugin for quite a long time.


 I created a small plugin to test calling `wp_get_current_user()` in a
 `shutdown` callback:

  * Plugin Name: #55415 - `wp_get_current_user()` in a `shutdown` callback.
  * Description: Runs `wp_get_current_user()` in a `shutdown` callback.
  * Author: WordPress Contributors

 add_action( 'shutdown', 'try_wp_get_current_user' );

 function try_wp_get_current_user() {

 There was no Fatal Error on PHP 7.4 or PHP 8.0.
 @ceceet if you have any additional information from the plugin developers
 about how they determined that this is an issue within WordPress Core
 rather than the plugin, that would be a big help in determining how best
 to resolve this issue.
