Configuring Bitcoin 0.18 node in a brand new Whonix VM on latest Qubes R4.0.
Trying to make Bitcoin create a hidden tor service following method 1 here.
Also followed what was applicable here.
Node connects to other onion nodes, and communicates with them normally, but doesn't create its own hidden service.
In debug.log, with debug=tor, it says:
tor: Thread interrupt tor: Successfully connected! tor: Connected to Tor version 0.3.5.8 tor: Supported authentication method: NULL tor: Using NULL authentication tor: Authentication successful tor: Add onion failed with unrecognized command (You probably need to upgrade Tor)
The "tor: Got service ID ..." never appears in the log.
All updates are applied in Qubes and this VM. Tor version seems to be the latest.
Bitcoin user can read cookies in /var/run.
What else to check? Are there any dependencies needed to enable tor cookie authentication?
