Cannot submit transaction

I am not able to send a transaction using:

cardano-cli transaction submit
–tx-file tx.signed

The cursor simply drops to the next line wanting another command.

any ideas or help would be appreciated!


did u waited more time? perhaps the transaction needs to be send to the blockchain (added in the next block)

Hi Alex, thanks for the fast response. Have waited more than 1 hour so far. Do I need to wait longer?

hmm, nope, but the transaction was submited? did u checked on cardano scan?

yes i checked… there is no transaction submitted :frowning:

then something is wrong… try to copy this command perhaps you have characters with wrong format

cardano-cli transaction submit \
    --tx-file tx.signed \

hmm nope that hasn’t worked either. My stake pool is retired, could it have something to do with updating cli or keys etc? Am I able to update these even with a retired pool? If so I might try that…?

yes, the transaction are different, it doesn’t care about the pool… but the node is 100% synced?

I think I need to update the node, can’t seem to see if its synced or not as liveview just says “failed to load common env file” …is there any other way to view if node is synced? perhaps I will try a full update and come back to you with the results. thank you so much for the help.

is there a quick command to update cardano-cli to 1.29.0 mine is 1.27.0

If you haven’t used some automated tools like CNTOOLS try with the Coincashew update instructions.

But it’s very easy and boils down to compiling the new node, updating 2 config files, and switching out two binaries.

In case of CNTOOLS @Alexd1985 will be able to tell you more, he’s a cntools jedi

Btw. latest since a few days ago is 1.30.1

Thanks guys, I’ll do that all tomorrow and see how I go. Getting late here in Australia. Thanks again for the help ill get back to you with how it goes! Cheers.
