Re: Unable to send lightning payment, server is still in the process of starting

I’m having this error on v0.4.18.

I see MANY people having this error but I have not yet been able to find an actual solution.

Has a solution been found to this problem yet?

I attempted doing an upgrade to v0.5.0,

However, when prompted to “Download Channel Backup”, it wouldn’t even complete the download.

All I get is an 877 byte file called “Unconfirmed 268091.crdownload”.

Tried again with a similar result: “Unconfirmed 717800.crdownload”

I’m just trying to get the bitcoin out of the lightning channel and into to another wallet.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
