Algorand node not syncing v3.9.4

Hi, I installed an algorand node on my machine following the instructions on Install a node - Algorand Developer Portal (Installation with Updater Script section)

On using the command goal node status, I get the following output

Time since last block: 0.0s

Sync Time: 0.0s

Last consensus protocol:

Next consensus protocol: same github link

Round for next consensus protocol: 1

Next consensus protocol supported: true

Last Catchpoint: 

Genesis ID: mainnet-v1.0

Genesis hash: wGHE2Pwdvd7S12BL5FaOP20EGYesN73ktiC1qzkkit8=

My understanding is that the last committed block should update over time and the sync time should not be 0 on the starting of the node.
Can anybody point out if there is anything wrong with my setup?

Indeed, your node seems to not sync.

When a node does not sync at all, it’s most likely an issue with DNS: your ISP may be filtering DNS queries or may forbid DNSSEC.

Can you check DNS problem with Algorand Server on Ubuntu 20.04 ?
Disabling DNSSEC is not ideal at all from a security point of view but may be the only options if your ISP does not allow it.

If this is not the issue, please post goal version -v, as well as the full node.log on for example a github gist. Please also check that:

  • you are using a fast enough SSD
  • you have at least 4GB of RAM, ideally 8GB
