Team Update #23: Peercoin v0.7 Released! Upgrade Deadline: March 12th, 2019 at 12:00 UTC!

I have upgraded to 0.7.2 from 0.6 on a R-Pi.
I am having "Info: Minting suspended while synchronizing wallet” for weeks even I downloaded the blockchain from scratch. Everything else seems fine.

    "protocolversion" : 70002,
    "walletversion" : 60000,
    "balance" : yyy.yyy0,

}

What is wrong.

it seems your node is not synced up, real network is up to 425k block already, as soon as node gets up to date minting will become unlocked.

to make sync inevitable, you can use -connect explorer.peercoin.net directive when starting.

Thanks for the pointer. There is a “=” between connect and address. Trying it. Now
I am stuck at 421060. debug.log has these forever:

not sure where you are receiving this block, as it’s definitely not part of the real testnet. are you sure you’ve used connect method correctly? try to resync with just one node connected.

I finally got around to upgrading…everything went smooth but how can I be sure I’m on the right chain?

check if you have the same block number as https://explorer.peercoin.net/

Where do I see what block I’m on?

in the debug window

Do you still need help?

I just upgraded my Pi so might be of assistance.
