My Electrum 2.8.2 shows "No FX rate available" at the bottom and shows "No Data" for the balances. Also, I'm missing a transaction that someone said they sent to me. How do I fix this to see my latest transactions and USD balances?
I've just had this problem as well. It looks like Electrum gets its currency information by default from the BitcoinAverage website. You could try to select a different source of information. Try and see if this helps:
Go to Tools > Preferences > Fiat > Source > Select something like BlockchainInfo
