Many people have been reporting issues with this so I decided to make a tutorial once and for all. getrawtransactions seemed to stop working after they updated electrum so this way is much easier:

Sometimes, due to one reason or another a transaction will get stuck when using your Electrum client. Either due to a bad internet connection or to an outdated client a transaction may not propagate through the bitcoin network causing coins to seemingly disappear. If you have an outdated Electrum client and you try to spend some bitcoins, a transaction may form with no issues and display on your electrum dashboard, but a block explorer like blolckchain.info or block.io will not find the transaction. This tutorial will guide you on how to fetch the raw transaction data from electrum, and using blockchain.info’s pushtx feature rebroadcast the transaction for all the bitcoin nodes to pickup.

Fetching the raw hex of the transaction

The easiest way to retrieve the hex value for a bitcoin transaction using electrum is to right click on transaction under the history tab.



When the window pops up click Save.

Save the .txn file and open it with notepad. You should see the following

You can also just press "copy" (instead of "save") then go to blockchain.info/pushtx and paste what is now in your clipboard into the box for the transaction. (when you press "copy" it will copy the raw transaction into your clipboard).

But if you sign a transaction with older version of the electrum, they might still not broadcast to the network because of the High S values which are considered non standard even if you do it with blockchain push transaction or other similar services? cmiiw

Wouldn't it just be easy to update the electrum to the latest version to solve this issue once and for all.
