Chia wallet cannot connect to full node - "Cannot connect to host"

Hello everyone,

I am having an issue with my Chia wallet where it cannot connect to the full node running on my local machine. Every time I try to connect, the wallet keeps spinning, and I get the error message

Cannot connect to host ssl:<ssl.SSLContext object at 0x7f3e5ea68ec0> [Connect call failed ('', 8444)]

in the debug log.

I have tried checking that my Chia node is running, and verifying the port number, but the issue persists.

I would appreciate any help or advice from the community on how to resolve this issue. Have any of you encountered a similar problem before, and if so, how did you solve it?

P.S.: I’ve just updated Ubuntu to the last version and the chia blockchain gui to Version 1.7.0

Thank you in advance for your help!
