This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Most onion sites are run by amateurs and are thus going down temporarily/permanently all the time. This can be seemingly exacerbated by indexes not removing links that have been down for a significant length of time.

If you can access "big" onion services such as Facebook's (https://facebookcorewwwi.onion) or DuckDuckGo's (http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/), then you're very likely trying to access onion services that are down. There's probably nothing wrong with your configuration.
