Bitcoin node out of sync

Hi Umbrel community,

I come accross an issue from time to time that renders my Umbrel node irresponsive to web brower requests and forces me to restart my node. After the restart I often times see that my node has a stale bitcoin tip - and often missing 100 blocks or more to the current tip. This is strange since I see my lightning node forward payments irrespective of the bitcoin node sync issue.
This happened today again.

Does anybody else face this issue or knows what is going on here?

Appreciate your feedback!

Go Umbrel!

Is possible you have a wrong setting in your lnd.conf file or setup for your network

Try this
Login to your node with an SSH client / Power terminal via

ssh -t umbrel@umbrel.local

Make a backup of your current lnd.conf

cp ~/umbrel/lnd/lnd.conf ~/umbrel/lnd/lnd.bak

Delete your current lnd.conf, re-configure Umbrel and restart the node

rm ~/umbrel/lnd/lnd.conf && ~/umbrel/scripts/configure && sudo reboot

After restart, your LND will take a few minutes to catch up again.
