Hard-Fork - Update before Block 440,000

Recommended Posts

Yes. Followed the guide here: 

From my terminal:

~$ cd xaya
~/xaya$ git checkout 1.1
Branch '1.1' set up to track remote branch '1.1' from 'origin'.
Switched to a new branch '1.1'

I think I had a similar issue and chalked it up to some misunderstanding of git on my part. In the end I just backed up my wallet, deleted everything, followed the original install guide again, then pasted my old wallet over the new one. You will have to resync though...

Exactly what I did, twice already!

Perhaps leave out this line and use the master  branch (see here) :

git checkout 1.1

Also, I don' t think I synced using the xaya-qt. You could try just running xayad and see what version it tells you.

But yea it won't know how to sync headers after that block if you are still on the old version, so that is the root problem.

Not sure if it will help but before you build try make clean and make dist clean

I'm not that familiar with linux myself (just switched recently from win 7), but  it would probably be helpful to have an "how to update for ubuntu" guide. It seems there are lots of little things that can go wrong outside of xaya itself (compiler, git, make, anything else?). I would make it if I felt more confident. Perhaps make a small bounty for it.

I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.10 and reinstalled xaya-qt following the guide here, but omitting the git checkout 1.1 line (i.e., using the master branch).

Once everything was up and running, headers fully synced and up-to-date, I quit xaya-qt, and copied my backed up wallet over the new empty wallet, restarted xaya-qt, and - hey presto! - everything is OK again! :)

Thanks to all here for advice.
