My syncing (with Memotoo) has been running smoothly for quite a while,
but just this weekend errors have appeared.
It looks as if every second sync attempt wants a slow sync. The slow
sync is successful, and the subsequent normal sync also works. But at
the next attempt I'm back to the same problem.
Only my main PC (Linux Mint Debian Jessie) has this problem, another one
with the very same config (in principle) syncs flawlessly.
I'd be tempted to "refresh from server"; is that the right thing to do?
Below is an excerpt from the terminal output.
TIA for any insight - best regards,
