it won’t work.

By the way ,i receive little data since 5.14.2020 ,anyone like me ? receive little data ??

The docker version is released i think a week after the github release. This is in order to slowly update nodes (from what i understand).

So just run watchtower, and let it take care of it.

pretty sure you should be pulling the beta version…

$ docker pull storjlabs/storagenode:beta

as stated in the link below … if you are on linux,

currently only windows can update to 1.4.3

the linux version of 14.3 will be out in like the coming week or maybe the week after.


you can see when the last version was released here…

Relax, we’re all on 1.3.3. Just be patient and let watchtower do its job.


receive little data ?? from 5.14

yes the network is very quite at the moment… there is no problem with your node…
its just the activity level of the storj network that is lacking.

you can see if the node is online in the dashboard… it’s one of the things its really reliable at tell us… xD
one of the few lol

Isn’t there a way to let people know that the docker update is coming a week later? Every time the forum is full of topics when there is an update.


Yeah, I think it’s wise to mention it with every changelog posted. But on the upside, the node dashboard has stopped telling people to update before it’s even possible. So this time around there are already much fewer questions because of that change.

I’ve been posting this image every time the question comes up. Docker can’t be updated until the 8th day after the changelog is posted. And it will be automatically updated within 10 days (which you should simply wait for, it works like this for a reason).
Btw, this is an indication, it might take a little longer or go a little faster, but this is the usual timeline.


one thing i find really odd are these commands that are floating around…

like this guy was using

       `   docker pull storjlabs/storagenode:alpha`

then there is the documentation one

           docker pull storjlabs/storagenode:beta

and the one from the docker page…

           docker pull storjlabs/storagenode

and then i think watchtower uses one called
docker pull storjlabs/storagenode:latest

Hmmmm maybe i’m just an idiot but it seems obvious now that this is a parameter, so one can easier select the image to pull… DOH sorry just me being stupid…
is there a
docker pull storjlabs/storagenode:stable
hehe not that mine is unstable, but might be useful to keep a version around with limited confusing dashboard bugs and such…

Oh right. Now that you say it, I notice that too. Nevertheless, there still has to be a solution for the forum. Or a small note in the update documentation “The updates for Docker will be rolled out a week later. Don’t be surprised that they don’t have the latest version yet” or the picture you posted.

So far, Watchtower has always taken care of the updates reliably.


that stuff only goes wrong when you are just landed on a 14 day holiday …
i like to manual update… its not really a bother and then i know that it will not go wrong… thus i should be able to leave the storagenode for atleast a month and it should just keep running without any trouble…


But that’s always so xD If something goes wrong I have OpenVPN and as a backup a second OpenVPN server. I have several things at home and in data centers, so automatic updates are a great relief. (But yes, I agree with you that there is always a certain risk and troubleshooting manual updates is easier)

i only have one node, so not really a big concern yet, but if i had many nodes and such i would still want to setup so that it asks for my permission to update and then reports the completion and verifies the storagenode is up… it nice to be able to have time to go fix it when it updates, just in case something goes sideways.

instead of it decides to update when one steps out of a plane lol
most of the time updates can wait a pretty long time and does little for overall node functions or performance.
