Error when running FatsCatchup

I have finally come back to setting up my Algorand node after being away sick for a few months and now I am coming up with an error that will not let me continue and has me stumped.

Node installed and running.
Run command line to start FastCatchup

  • ./goal node catchup 14810000#FCGW2RSBAUA5V7UHSQLMUUXWB25CYN5ENVPYYZL5BATDTRQH6M3A -d $ALGORAND_DATA

Error: Cannot contact Algorand node: Post “http://127.0.0.1:8080/v2/catchup/14810000%23FCGW2RSBAUA5V7UHSQLMUUXWB25CYN5ENVPYYZL5BATDTRQH6M3A”: dial tcp 127.0.0.1:8080: connect: connection refused

I have searched around but can’t find any help. If you could give me a little help that would be very much appreciated.

Cheers

Your node need to already be running: goal node start

Note also that you do not need to add -d $ALGORAND_DATA. By default the data folder is $ALGORAND_DATA.

Have tried both of that before and tried again and still am getting the same error. See below.

‘’’ Algorand:node algorand$ goal node start

Algorand node successfully started!

Algorand:node algorand$ goal node status

Your node is crashing when starting.

Can you copy-paste between triple backquotes ``` (these are not the single quotes, these are a different characters - on a US key board, this is the key just below the Esc key):

  • the last 20 lines of $ALGORAND_DATA/node.log
  • all the file $ALGORAND_DATA/algod-err.log
