Unable to sync Monero GUI version 0.17.1.9 and Ledger nano s ver 1.6.1. wallet I'm trying to sync GUI version: 0.17.1.9-release, in Advanced mode (Local node).

These are the steps taken to sync GUI wallet:

  1. Launch Monero Desktop app
  2. Put in 8 PIN to Ledger Nano s running firmware version 1.6.1
  3. Typed in Monero wallet password
  4. Get message "Opening Wallet" and
  5. answer Export View key question on Nano s
  6. Get message "Starting Local Node"
  7. Network Status: Starting the node
  8. Then I get "Daemon Failed to start Timed out, local node is not responding after 120 secs

I upgraded from GUI version: 0.17.1.7 to GUI version: 0.17.1.8 to version: 0.17.1.9. "--enable-dns-blocklist" was typed in Daemon Startup flags a few attempts ago.

The app has not worked since about 30 December, at GUI version: 0.17.1.7.

The daemon log shows.....: Error: Couldn't connect to daemon: 127.0.0.1:18081

[06/01/2021 15:35] 2021-01-06 15:35:01.367 I Monero 'Oxygen Orion' (v0.17.1.8-release) Error: Couldn't connect to daemon: 127.0.0.1:18081 ......... and so on

Suspecting the Wallet is corrupt I followed the CLI manual monerod process in an earlier answer to another user who couldn't sync. The process started to sync manually. After 10 hours I typed in EXIT in CLI and tried the GUI wallet assuming corruption had been fixed. Still unable to sync GUI wallet and getting same error message: Daemon failed to start. Timed out, local node is not responding after 120 seconds. Please advise how to fix my Windows desktop wallet.
