Umbrel stuck syncing

if I had known I would be needing to type in 30 digit passwords consisting of symbol, upper/lowercase into a terminal that doesn’t show as it is typed… I would have chosen a less secure password! :smiley:

Is that node running a nuclear launching codes or something?
For a 100k sats channel I don’t think is really necessary to be so freaked out and go “paranoia mode on”.
Man, you are accessing that node from your OWN LAN, OWN PCs, not from some kind of internet cafe in India… if you do not trust yourself, I don’t know how you deal in life.

I’m having this exact same issue.

Here’s the link to my logs: https://umbrel-paste.vercel.app/97b5ba5eaded6a96a3600bb5a287db8c

Doesn’t seem like this community is very active. I’ve been fiddling with this for over a week, my new question is, how do I blow away the existing block in order to restart confirmations?

I’m having the same issue, too.

Also have been having this issue for awhile now.

Same issue…

Seems like no one is looking at this particular issue. Any idea how to go about a re-start of the process? Blow away the entire install and start over?

Hi everyone, I have the same issue. This is my link: https://umbrel-paste.vercel.app/b9bfdd099d9ede819683f052fcfb4e6d

Can somebody help me?

Whole bunch of us dead in the water here with the same issue.

I’m resorting to looking at other forums where people are having this similar issue with running a “node” not Umbrel per se. The suggestion is to remove the peers.dat file, I’ve attempted to do that but apparently it would also require passing -rescan when starting “bitcoin” in order to rescan peers. The other option suggested is to pass -reindex on the startup. These don’t appear to be options on Umbrel start script.

Okay, don’t do what I did, it didn’t work. I’m going to try and wipe my install and start fresh. Stopped Umbrel, dropped my docker database and re-installed. I’m back to processing blocks, lets hope for the best. Thanks!

Bumping this, still no success on my side in getting this working.
Tried everything I can think of.

Have the same issue!

I reflashed the SD disk with a fresh download.

Literally nothing changed at all.

Hello. Running on Raspi with HDD.

I had exactly the ‘hangup’ that is screenshotted above. I saw that the bitcoin container was restarting every 45 seconds. I took a look at the logs and under bitcoin saw a statement saying to set reindex=1 in bitcoin.conf.

I did that and am now getting this error:

Syncing takes a longtime. I have been runningfor 2 weeks and are only at 45%, and now itgoes much slower, so it will take 30 till 60 more days to sync.
It it possible to download this instead?

I am using a 1 TB SSD and Raspberry 4 with 4 GB of RAM

I think I am using an SSD. How can I check it? I can SSH into the Raspberry from my PC and see what is mounted, but how do I see if it is SSD or HDD?
