Even after updating to the latest version, I am not able to get on the right chain for days now and I am really close to giving it up.

I tried using the latest and the Download Block function. I am like always stuck on blocks arround 115****..
This is really confusing and time (plus cpu) consuming.

What do? There should be a solution quite fast, this seems to be a problem for not-so-active-community members like my coworkers and fellow students...


have you tried updated to

there was a sticking issue recently patched


Wow, I completely missed that there is already a new version. It's hard to stay current (especially because there is still no integrated updater :( )
Thanks for the tip, I guess I will try getting back to sync with the snapshot :)
