Download stops despite connected seeders

Post by tokyotea »

First post. Apologies if I missed the answer in my search of the site.

On an irregular and infrequent basis, downloading just stops despite several seeders being reported as connected. Progress bars begin to show the same amounts Downloaded and Available (same amounts shown in both bars) instead of a multiple of 1 available (solid bar). Seeding continues.

I am trying to find a cause and solution for this problem and have two downloads with this issue now. Setting "Download" to "(F) Download" does not help and causes some seeds to disconnect in a majority of cases. Problem seems most frequent with torrents that originate with UK TV program torrents.

Lubuntu 20.07 LT
qBittorrent v.4.1.7 (newest listed version)
ExpressVPN installed -- works with VPN both on and off, Regularly seeing speeds of up to 14 Mbps up and down, bursts of 30+ Mbps
no max/min speeds set, no time schedules, available download slots set to 500 or more.

Can anyone suggest a cure?
