  • been using go-ipfs for some time without major issues
  • installed IPFS Desktop (the latest version) yesterday
  • couldn’t run ipfs dag export nor ipfs name publish due to the same reason

? Error: block was not found locally (offline): ipld: could not find…(currently offline, perhaps retry after attaching to the network)

  • my ipfs desktop is running while it happened
  • settings
  • IPFS Desktop installed on c:; data blocks located on d:\
