    Is your node compiled from the mainnet branch ? Not the master one ?

The command is wrong. You need to download the file from https://tezosshots.com/; put it into your Tezos folder and import.

Try: ~/tezos/tezos-node snapshot import mainnet.full --data-dir /mnt/data/tezos

  • I am using this command, sorry I didn't wrap
