My log was stuck on this for 30 minutes:

And then after 30 minutes, showed this:

Any ideas what could be wrong?

UPDATE

I've tried deleting the blocks and chainstate folders. Same thing happens. It gets up to here:

2019-12-10T04:54:00Z dnsseed thread exit

And then does nothing. I assume it's going to start with the "Potential stale tip detected" errors soon.

This answered my question.

put these lines to your conf file, shutdown and restart syncing again

addnode=104.237.131.138
addnode=151.80.205.132
addnode=192.155.82.123
addnode=74.220.255.190
addnode=80.100.203.151

And I had to unblock outgoing ports 8333.
