what does the error above means?

Hi @tdx678! I have no clue what they mean exactly but a “double spend” in crypto usually means you’re trying to spend the same coin multiple times, which is impossible. Did you happen to initiate the same transaction multiple times or something?

It’s not been very long for transactions to start working so you might have a rough time getting answers for a while.

Maybe also describe what you’re doing instead of only dropping log lines, that might help people get an idea of what happened.

hi. i have been farming for a week and no luck on earning any chia yet.

so i did some research and happen to see this article:

https://chiaforum.com/t/troubleshooting-failure-to-farm-with-lots-of-plots-due-to-harvester-30s-timeout/413

so i set the log level to info and i’m quite surprised to see this 2 type of errors popping up quite frequently.

there are quite a few errors as well. e.g:

2021-05-04T02:25:21.644 full_node full_node_server        : ERROR    Exception: Failed to fetch block 225873 from None, timed out, None. Traceback (most recent call last):

appreciate if you can help me with the errors. I did not do anything except changing the log level to INFO.

thank you!!!

Looks fine, sometimes you just can’t get a block from a peer.

A week of farming is usually not enough to even think about getting a block, make sure to look at the Farm section in the GUI which will tell you how long it will take, on average, to win a block.

Looks like this error is because the network is having some troubles at the moment: Why are my transactions pending? Did I mess something up? - #2 by gerhard
