Hi,

I sent that transaction from Electrum 2.9.3 yesterday. The source has confirmed amount.
https://www.blocktrail.com/BTC/tx/d4fb1d1ad81b36992e5da6d9c6a0d9b6857147b3a8853f93f90889cbf64d7a92

First the fee was low, then I increased it to 1.77778 mBTC/kb,
and changed the transaction from RBF to final. It has been pending for 11 hours already,
although for the fee in [0.0017,0.0018] range, https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/ estimates
confirmation in 10-240 minutes.

When increasing the fee, I changed the transaction to "final". Maybe I shouldn't have done it?
My reasoning was that since non-RBF transaction has the disadvantage that fee cannot be changed,
and non-RBF is provided as an option, it should have some advantage over RBF, so I
thought it could be faster.

Please help, I'm new in blockchain (started 3 days ago).

Let me add that network connections seem fine;
changed the server several times, no effect.

Seems your transaction fee is okay I mean it's not too low that the network will not confirm it, but since the network has a huge backlog this time and it currently its 58k it might be the initial reason. And please upgrade your electrum to 3.0 instead of 2.9.3 for future use.
Anyway I accelerate your transaction, now you have to wait until antpool find its new block for several minutes and possible hours before the transaction got confirmed.
