As you can see in the image, I cannot close the question even though I have >500 reputation.

I cannot blame it on caching because I passed 500 reputation a long time ago (greater than a month).

This is not a bug. The privilege levels changed with the new design, so you now need 3000 reputation to close questions.

If you're noticing your privileges have changed, they've been updated to the higher levels.
