I am completely new to Algo, I was trying to do my first transaction using this example: Your first transaction - Algorand Developer Portal.
The problem is that the fast-catchup with catchpoint remains stuck at 0/1000.
I have tried many times to clone sandbox but I had the same problem every time.
I am using macOS.
What should I do?
Usual issues are:
- You are using a HDD or a slow SSD. You now need a fast SATA SSD or an NVMe SSD.
- You don’t have enough RAM: you need at least 4GB.
- You have some DNS issues (when this happens, the round will always stay at 0).
- You don’t have the latest version of the sandbox
Please follow instructions of Fast Catchup not working in Sandbox on Windows (Mainnet) - #2 by fabrice after checking the above.
I am having the same issue. Do you have any advice on how to solves the DNS issues? I am stuck at 0/1000 and 0% also. Everything else seems to be working fine, all updated versions etc. Would really appreciate if you could help.
I had this problem and for me the issue was that I had run a local sandbox and not run a
clean before trying to run a testnet sandbox. You could try:
./sandbox up testnet
Thanks for your reply. I’ve tried this, unfortunately no luck. I think the issue is because my laptop is old, still has HDD. I tried disabling DNS security (seen in another post as a potential solution) but didn’t work either. Will buy a new laptop tomorrow!
