So I've been follwing the official upgrade guide (posted here and on getmonero.org.)

I have updated my binaries, PGP-verified them. Now my issue is that when I have a monero-wallet-cli session open, when I run bc_height, I keep on getting 1546200, and it never changes over time. I made sure monerod is running in the background.

What could be the source of this issue, and how may I fix it?

EDIT:

I have looked into the monerod log. Looks like it's looping over the same block over and over again ("Sync data returned a new top block candidate: 1546200 -> 1546107") Maybe this can be a hint into where the problem lies?

Note how the blockheight 1546200 keeps on being repeated throughout the log.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Were you running v.0.11 monerod past block 1546000? And then you got the new binaries? You can see that your block height is past the actual chain height. You may need to do monero-blockchain-import --pop-blocks 250 to get your chain to before the fork height, so it can choose the right chain when it gets to 1546000. – scoobybejesus Apr 7 '18 at 15:49
