I have been using Tor for while. It was working fine but today it refuses to start. It gets stuck here (at start-up):

I have tried rebooting and sudo killall tor multiple times. Also, I have re installed Tor. I found a similar issue here: Tor stuck at 0% , but no one answered.

  • Have you tried using a bridge, and using a stable version of tor? And if you could post the log messages at info level that may help too. – Steve Apr 29 at 14:11
  • Thanks for your reply. I added the log file. No I haven't tried using a stable version or a bridge because I have been using Tor for about a year and I never felt the need. Can this be due to my system being on the university network? – Arushi Arora Apr 29 at 16:37
  • Some universities do block Tor, so that could be it. A bridge should help you connect to the network. – Steve Apr 29 at 23:41
  • I tried installing the latest version, but it did not work. Next, I created another account on my NUC and reinstalled tor, it worked fine. Reinstalling tor on my own account did not work though. – Arushi Arora May 14 at 17:15
