How to run an Algorand node on Ubuntu

Hey guys,

Tried following the directions for the Ubuntu installation, however I feel some steps are missing (see )

Could someone point me to updated instructions on installing a node and connecting to the wallet via nano ledger S?

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y gnupg2 curl software-properties-common curl -O sudo apt-key add sudo add-apt-repository "deb stable main" sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y algorand algod -v

Then ran :

goal node status -d data


Algorand node failed to start: node exited before we could contact it

The command:

pgrep algod



every time, block number doesn’t change.



One reason might be that data is not a valid data folder.
If you install the node using the DEB package as you did, the data directory is /var/lib/algorand.

Can you send data/algod-err.log and /var/lib/algorand/algod-err.log if this does not solve your issue?
