I don’t know what happened when I upgraded to the latest, or if installing Samourai did it, or if trying to run rsync on the whole machine did it, but the blockchain stopped syncing. I ran -reindex and it’s at 90.77% after 11 days. I’m on an SSD on the recommended 8gb Pi, over ethernet. I can’t believe this takes this long. From what I read, it should take 2 days. I’m worried that this -reindex won’t fix my original problem. I guess I just have to wait another day or more to see.
There’s got to be a faster way to bootstrap a node, right? I don’t think I can deal with 2 weeks of downtime for an unknown error again.
