I sent this using the Mycelium wallet and there are no options to fix the fees being too low. I have tried numerous transaction accelerators with nothing resolving the issue.

try to accelerator your transaction using any of these accelerators : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2624419.0

Thanks. That was one of the first things I did after a number of days passed. Unfortunately, it did not result in any confirmations and now weeks later it is still with no confirmations.

im in the same situation as you cant seem to get any accelerators to actually work cant double spend and cant cpfp. let me know if you have any luck or figure anything out im at 17 days now.

 im wondering if by doing the rebroadcast and accelerate process it actually kept updating the transaction in the mempool meaning it technically is active which according to that it would mean we would have to sit and not touch the transaction at all for XXX so many days before it truly timed out..... i dunno its about the only theory i have left.

So go check your tx on another explorer like blocktrail not blockchain it's been removed also check electrum with your wallet it didnt show the stuck transaction on electrum so I just deleted the transaction out of my wallet hr later it was back in my wallet. I dunno something was screwy but I have mine back now try it might be same problem.

I am glad to hear you got it back. I will try that and see if it resolves the issue. Then I will just pay the high fees to ensure it goes through this time.

Unfortunately the transaction is still unconfirmed and Mycelium still shows to be sending it. Basically the BTC us just trapped in limbo and I do not see a way to do anything with it. Has anyone resolved an issue like this?

Your transaction is 76638 bytes in size and pays 3 satoshi/byte. At the moment fees in mempool are lower than they've been in a long time, and even with those "low" fees, miners can earn 40 times more from other transactions than from your transaction. That's more than $1000 extra for miners.

You've been collecting Bitcoin dust for a long time, without consolidate them when fees were still low. Unfortunately, you now pay the price for that, but luckily, you have 2 Bitcoins in total so you'll have plenty left after fees.

I would export the private key, import it into Bitcoin Core, enable Coin control features, select 10-20 inputs at a time, and create new transactions with a (bit) higher fee. I expect miners are much more likely to include a 2kB transaction than a 76kB transaction.
If you're in a hurry, you can do it all today and pay about 0.1-0.2BTC fee to get it confirmed. What I would do, is wait it out until fees are lower again (I know it's a gamble but I expect this to happen on some quiet Sunday), and then make the transactions.
Bitcoin Core requires you to download 150 GB if you don't have it installed yet.

As an alternative, you can do all this on coinb.in, but that's something I would only recommend for experienced users (it's tricky and can be risky).

Thanks! That worked perfectly. I am not in a rush, do you have a recommended lowest fee that would get confirmed eventually, but just not quickly?

Keep an eye on https://btc.com/stats/unconfirmed-tx, but I haven't seen it say "40 satoshi/byte" in at least 2 weeks now.
