I could not let you know the precise time when this began, nor precisely all of the issues I’ve tried since, however I by no means had this type of difficulty earlier than, and I have been operating it for a very long time on many installations.
Initially, it will get caught at “Accomplished loading” within the GUI field displaying eternally till it really goes into the precise software.
Secondly, as soon as it’s really displaying the GUI, it says “48 hours behind” or “2 days behind” day by day these days, till it lastly is completed syncing. The factor is, I by no means maintain the pc off for longer than perhaps eight hours, so it isn’t attainable for this to be correct.
I am at v0.20.1. Tried going again to v0.20.zero earlier than after which again to v0.20.1 once more. No modifications of my pc have been made, and my disk the place the (full) blockchain resides will not be broken or appearing up.
Aside from the merely sensible inconvenience, this disturbs me on a deeper stage. I am witnessing how your entire desktop pc as an idea is being killed off and deserted, and it actually frightens me as I do not see any various. The “smartphones”, “tablets”, and many others. are nothing however pure spyware and adware gadgets, basically crippled and offers me a particularly dangerous “vibe”. I do not need Bitcoin Core to additionally fall into items and turn out to be so unstable and buggy that it is unusable.
I’ve additionally a number of instances tried deleting a ton of information within the knowledge dir (besides the blocks, and whereas Bitcoin Core will not be operating) to make it “reset” no matter inside statistics could also be tousled, however nothing helps.
I am frankly not up for “troubleshooting” at this level, however merely attempting to determine if others know what’s inflicting this for positive and have skilled the identical factor.
(I am unable to ask on Github as a result of that website does not permit accounts to be created, like most websites immediately.)
What may probably clarify this very unusual behaviour?
