The Um2 "plus" (plus is key) are much less likely to get underextrusion than other printers.  If it's not brand new and if this problem is recent then I'd change the nozzle and the Teflon part as tinker says above.

 

Also the wrong cura settings can easily cause underextrusion.  You could try posting all of those - the key ones are: layer height, print speed (all layer heights and all print speeds), line width (all line widths) and temperature but that's set on the printer.

 

Also try a cold pull.  It's complicated to explain but easy to do.  A cold pull will clean the nozzle from the inside - there could be sand, dust, pieces of nylon, etc in the nozzle.  Cold pull (also known as "atomic pull" or "atomic method"):

I had this with PVA filament that was damaged by moisture. If you are using PVA (or any other moisture sensitive material, like nylon), make sure to store it in a drybox of some sort (buy one, or make one yourself. Just google it :) )

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
