I upgraded my Umbrel yesterday, it took 5 minutes and ran smoothly. Today I noticed a 10m channel pending closure. It was up less than a month out of 12, the other guy did not initiate it. The closure started two hours after the upgrade. What could be the problem?
Also, I had a LN+ watchtower configured before the upgrade. Now lncli tower info results in error “unknown desc = watchtower not active” and I cannot fix that.
Force closed channels can happen if you had a HTLC in pending in the moment you restart your node for updating.
Always is good to do these maintenance tasks when your node is in a “calm” moment and do not have too many HTLCs on the fly.
Some CLN nodes had a bug that FC channels with HTLC in fly, but right now they release a new patch
The closing is still pending after 36 hours. And what worries me that Umbrel made who withdrawals from my Bitcoin wallet for 5545 and 6316 sats. I thought the cost of closing was charged in advance during the opening?
I once had a force closed channel that took 2 weeks to see funds back.
All depends if you had pending HTLC with that channel in the moment of closure.
It sucks I know, but is nothing you can do just wait for the maturity block.
You can check that as I explained in the troubleshooting manual
looks like my channel partner is offline.
block is mined.
why is it locked? because the htlc is still pending?
how can I just ignore the htlc and an accept everything so my funds return to me on change?
