Connection Issues After Recent Cardano & Daedalus Update
After installing the latest Daedalus 0.10.0 and Cardano 1.2 release delivered to users through the Daedalus update system, some users have reported an issue with connecting to the network.
An analysis of the logs received from the submitted support requests shows that the cause of the issue is corrupted configuration caused by the installation of the update while Daedalus processes were still running.
This occurred if users interrupted the normal update installation process by clicking on the Daedalus icon while the update system was shutting down Daedalus processes, after the user has accepted the update in Daedalus user interface.
To avoid this issue in the future, the Daedalus installer will be fixed with checks for running Daedalus processes before starting installation.
This fix will be shipped to the users as the 1.2.1 hotfix release.
Users experiencing the issue described above should do the following:
- Restart their computer
- Download the Daedalus installer from the Daedalus website
- Install Daedalus by executing the downloaded installer
After the installation is complete, Daedalus should work as expected and all wallets should be visible in the user interface.
