Just out of curiosity, what does the UV display look like if you select the face on the bottom?

Clean up your top face. If you don’t create concave n-gons you won’t have this trouble.

Yeah. It’s like that.

The top face probably isn’t connected to the sides?

Looks like the easiest way for you to fix is to delete that whole top face then bridge opposing edges of the side faces.
