Error Observed: Log; Error validating checkpoint module=checkpoint startBlock

If the node throws these logs, check the following:

  • Check if the Bor node is in sync by running the following command

    bor attach .bor/data/bor.ipc

    If the output is “false”, then the Bor node is in sync.

  • Check if the Bor node is on the wrong fork by running this command

    bor attach .bor/data/bor.ipc

    Find the associated block hash for the block number:

    bor attach .bor/data/bor.ipc
    eth.getBlockByNumber("<Block Number>").hash

    Inspect the block number to identify if you are running on the right fork. One way to do this is to search for the block number on an explorer like Polygonscan.

If the hashes match, then the node is on the right fork.
