Help! creating a stake pool when query utxo

Hello I’m doing the tutorial for running a stake pool and got this error: “cardano-cli: Network.Socket.connect: <socket: 11>: does not exist (Connection refused)”

when using this command…

cardano-cli shelley query utxo
–address $(cat payment.addr)
–testnet-magic 1097911063

I had my node running before but noticed that now it’s not working. When I start after few minutes gives me this error: "cardano-node: symbol lookup error: cardano-node: undefined symbol: crypto_vrf_publickeybytes "

Any help is much appreciated

This term is not appropriate on the mainnet (only for the old testnet), so replace it with the
--mainnet option:

cardano-cli shelley query utxo
--address $(cat payment-source.addr)
--mainnet

Thanks for the response!, but the tutorial I am doing is all about the shelley testnet. Not the mainnet

here’s the link https://cardano-foundation.gitbook.io/stake-pool-course/stake-pool-guide/stake-pool-operations/keys_and_addresses

This error typically occurs when the node is not running - can you confirm the node is up?

Also, regarding the crypto_vrf_publickeybytes error, you will need libsodium installed and will need to add the following to your .bashrc and source it:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH"

Also this could be from using a socket file that does not exist (as ADAFrog suggests if node is not running but also if node is using another named socket file etc). What have you configured as your env variable socket file for cardano-cli?

Hello augustov, I had the same trouble and I could fix it following the ADAfrog comment above.

I have just intall the libsodium again and add the following to my .bashrc and source it:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH"

It works, and I could see the transferred value from received from faucet,

Thanks to post the question here
