Been having problems as well. Ubuntu 19.10 with over 5Mbps download and twice as much up. This is odd and the wallet is definitely not syncing. I left it over night and it looks like it eventually worked partway but did not get further that a third of the way done. The page addressing how long it should take on the support network says it should take an hour.
Last time I saw the wallet working was over a week ago, when I was using a different box. This one is starting fresh and having hella problems.
