eth_getBlockByNumber: error: got null header for uncle 0 of block


Get the error like “got null header for uncle 0 of block 31a5349bbb0f6962d9580a8e05677e9b8c50f0f73822686c1dd126ee93e09fcc” quite often when call eth_getBlockByNumber. Anyone knows what it is? Does disappear after ~8 seconds when the query is retried.

Sounds like this is a case where it’s looking for an uncle that doesn’t exist. As long as it disappears, I’d say it’s nothing to worry about

Understood. Thank you for the answer!
