What Am I Doing Wrong with My Livia?

I buy roasted beans from CoffeeAM. I grind them in a Mazzer Mini. I use the doser with the single basket for the Livia. My cups are watery, tasting more like coffee from Dunkin Donuts than espresso.
I was getting pretty good 20 sec pours up to about 3 months ago. I have not changed anything on the grinder.
My grind is pretty fine (whatever that means). A pour takes about 10 seconds, and there is a little crema.
I backflush the Livia a couple times a month. I have replaced the portafilter gasket.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for any advice.
