I opened the gui wallet after a month of not using it. It started syncing for a day but then just stopped. It says it is connected and syncing but stays at the same last block. I have restarted it several times but it stays the same. I'm not sure what to do. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!! Don

  • Which specific block are you stuck at? It might be that you are using an outdated version. Are you using GUI beta 2?

  • I tried to download the latest version but I must be doing something wrong. Commented Jun 13, 2017 at 16:14
  • Do I extract the files that come up? What extraction path? Sorry I'm not sure how to do this properly. Commented Jun 13, 2017 at 16:16

    Which OS are you using? You can download the latest version from here: getmonero.org/downloads Extraction path can simply be a directory of your liking, as long as it does not contain spaces.

I'm very new at this, but I think that particular block was the fork. This means you have to be running the newest Monero software, and the first version will not sync past that point. (I'm having a similar problem, with a different block.)

  • You are correct. This is a couple dozen blocks after the fork, so this is a leftover chain maintained by a few miners which didn't update. Syncing the chain to the latest block requires monero 0.11.

Update your Monero Gui ( currently at this time). Sometimes it will show Synchronizing and sometimes Connected: but don't worry, it's just finding some blocks on the available networks.

ARCHIVE it, name it ThisIsFileAxB2Q and PUT the password GammaTangoFoxtrotWunTousandAitZeero and SEND it to the facebook = link . Commented Nov 8, 2017 at 11:37
