Could you try as follows:

[1] Exit monerod

[2] Delete p2pstate.bin (on Windows it's in C:\ProgramData\bitmonero | Linux & Mac OS X it's in $HOME/bitmonero)

[3] Restart monerod with the following command:

Code:
monerod --block-sync-size 20

If you could give your operating system I could give some more detailed instructions (if aforementioned aren't sufficient).

I've restarted the machine, fsck-ed the filesystem with no errors found and it looks like it's still stuck.
I'll try your suggestion now.

I'm having the same problem as Chiken76, daemon that is stuck on block 1200001 on my VPS that I'm setting up for the first time.

I'd like to follow dEBRUYNE's advice but I can't find the p2pstate.bin file. I'm quite new to this so I could be doing something dumb.

Which OS? I presume Linux / Mac OS X, but I'd like to know for sure. Anyway, it should be in $HOME/bitmonero. The directory itself may be hidden, so you have to manually browse to it. Alternatively, on Linux you can unhide directories by using CTRL + H.

Privacy matters, use Monero - A true untraceable cryptocurrency

I've tried your suggestion with "--block-sync-size" (even a value of 1) and it doesn't get it past 1200001. I'll delete the blockchain and let it resync from scratch.
I'm running the same linuxarm7 build as monerostruggles1111

EDIT: Stopped the daemon and tried to run it on the testnet, to see if it syncs. I got the same behavior, only this time it's stuck on block 3, hehe.

EDIT 2: I've restarted it with "--log-level 4" in hope the details might shed some light on the problem.
Right now it's dumping a 100MB log file every 2 minutes mostly with messages like:

How does this differ in terms of being untraceable ? is it a scrambler or mixer or whatever ?

Some info here:

You could also watch this:

Plenty info out there. Just google it.

Could you check in the logs whether there are any "Block fails to get added" messages? It's probably easier to spot if you restart monerod with --log-level 1.

I've tried --log-level 3 as well, but it's the same deluge.
However, with --log-level 2 it's easier to spot the important things. What intrigues me is this message:
Code:
2017-05-16 20:44:22.197 [P2P8]  INFO    net.cn  src/cryptonote_protocol/cryptonote_protocol_handler.inl:981     [IP:50350 INC] Block verification failed, dropping connection
"IP" is different every time. (over a couple of minutes worth of logs this is present dozens of times)
I don't see any messages like "Block fails to get added".

EDIT: Actually, this is even more relevant:
Code:
2017-05-16 20:41:19.797 [P2P9]  ERROR   verify  src/cryptonote_core/blockchain.cpp:3185 Block with id: <82e8a00ebb396dcafc9ba5b44e9aad367bbc8f886736b0a49dd506c114b621fa>

Well I ditched the armv7 for an armv8 machine and after importing the blockchain from the old box and firing up the daemon it seems to be syncing again.

Code:

Maybe there's something wrong with armv7?

Apparently the issue is known and is being investigated by the devs:

Thanks for letting us know.
If the devs need any info from me, or to beta-test a future fix, I'll be happy to help.

Monero users might find this interesting. New cyber attack with monero in the middle of it.

Interesting read.
However, since the claimed virus started mining XMR, while the hackers are dumping XMR to the market, the price increases instead of decrease? Really?
Although such scenarios are possible, even bedtime stories don't have such big inconsistencies...

Disclosure of a Major Bug in CryptoNote Based Currencies (patched in Monero already)

Quote
To clarify, we patched it quite some time ago, and confirmed that the Monero blockchain had NEVER been exploited using this, but until the hard fork that we had a few weeks ago we were unsure as to whether or not the entire network had updated.

Some modest advice

- New website. You guys should be now able to hire the best web designer out there.

- Refine further the GUI ergonomy
All the uneccessary settings for transactions should be hidden. It needs maximum simplification so the non-techy users don't feel confused. Even the tax ID field. Show them on click.
The design as well coud be greatly refined as it's still looking a bit gross and heavy.

Take a look at LTC website and wallet design. These guys had quite terrible design before. If Litecoin have been able to successfully redesign everybody should be able to do it.

- The paper against Monero published by Zcash devs is showing up on Google search. I'm afraid it's bringing confusion for people searching about Monero. I don't know If you made a blog entry about this in order to clarify. But if not you should.

For all the rest I think you guys are doing genuine work.

This is in the works, see:

Kind of agree, some advanced stuff is already hidden though. Would you be able to open an issue here with your suggestions?

I think that he wanted to say that some SEO magic could make that "thing" not be so visible on Google results (like adding more pages in front of that).
However, I attempted a few Google requests and that "paper" was not on the first page, so it really matters what are you searching for (and the keywords LawBC used could be a helpful example).
