ERROR Invalid proof of space / New challenge is not challenge


I am facing a problem with pooling. I joined Space.pool and created plots using the pool_contract_key and my farmer_public_key. The plots are visible in the plot NFT screen. In the debug. log is see every 10 seconds the message below. No partials are submitted. I created the plots with the original chia plotter via Swar Plot manager.

I asked at spacepool discord and followed all checklists, but still no solution :frowning:

Any idea what this error means and how to fix it?

No one? Any suggestions are appreciated :cold_sweat:

I had the same problem in Flax… I had a proof and I did not win the block because of that message. I assume it is equivalent to Chia and I’m afraid it might happen in Chia aswell.

We see this often too…I hate to say this as it’s not really a solution but the old chia farming client sucks. Usually a reset will fix it.

A reset? What do you mean by that? Thanks

Turn it off and on again.
