Ok, simply pausing and restarting doesn't help. If I do that they start over from scratch until they stall again at the end. Had to delete them and start a different wu. Happens rarely but it is a new phenomenon which started occuring maybe a month ago.

I had a few of those stuck tasks as well maybe 10 of them last week. They all appeared on my Android devices version 10 with Boinc 7.18.1. They would run to 99.95% and than just sat there. This particular example I discovered after 30 hours but the log shows only 10 hours of CPU time. My wingmen seemed to have finished this task without problems. I translated the important info of the log file.

In the future I will try to pause the wu and restart it again.

My rig dedicated to Universe consists out of 17 Android devices. Sometimes they don't perform as they should. It would be a lot easier to find out the misbehaving one if there would be an additional column under my "computers" which shows the number of uploaded wu's yesterday or within the last 24 hours. At the moment I have to manually check and count the results of every device which is not convenient.

Hey Krzysztof. Are we all waiting at the moment for the last 1200 wu's to complete? If that is the case why don't you just abort those? If people are keeping excessively long work queues and holding up the system upgrade I feel we shouldn't feel sorry. They can download new wu's after the server revamp

You don't need to remove a project from you list everytime there is no more work. Just leave it and concentrade on another project until the work returns...

Hey Keith! You were right! The problem was the outdated certificate. After updating Boinc Universe works without problems. It is interesting to note that of the four projects I tried only Universe seemed to be effected by that. Thanks.

on my Android the Universe WU's appear for download but they never start and just sit there saying "downloading", not doing anything. Before the summer when I turned the phone off because of the heat, Universe worked fine. Rosetta, Einstein and WCG still do. On that phone I am not using the newest BOINC version but the one before that (7.16.x?) which used to work just fine. Since summer I didn't change any settings. Does anyone experience the same problem?

Hey Keith! What are your experiences with the Jetson Nano? What projects can you run and does it get a decent amount of work done? Did I understand you correctly and it can also perform GPU tasks? Thanks for all your posts... Tom
