I recently had to reset my Umbrel node from scratch because of a corrupted SSD drive issue. I used the Umbrel restore menu to restore/force close my LN channels. Now it’s been 2 weeks since the force closures started, and all the channels disappeared from the payment channels section of the LN Umbrel app.
I was able to withdraw some of the funds from some of the closed channels, but unfortuantely, I still have 1.8M sats on-chain that I’m not able to withdraw to another wallet (they are currently marked as “pending” in Thunderhub). Is this normal that these are still pending, eventhough the channels have already been closed & disappeared from the Umbrel interface?
Thankfully the problem is now solved - after trying various “recover” points from different backups (which didn’t work), the Umbrel support team suggested that I just delete the Lightning Node app, reboot my Umbrel and re-install the app. And after doing that and waiting for the LN node to re-syncing, to my great surpris I was able to retrieve the on-chain funds funds.
I’m guessing the LN node got mixed up in terms of the information if had, for some unknown reason, and re-installing the app fixed it. Thanks everyone for your help!
