Make sure whether you're using Ubuntu 16 or 18. Ensure that your machine is up to date by running:
"sudo apt update"
"sudo apt upgrade"

The system makes a backup every hour keeping four hours worth of files.

Depending on Ubuntu 16 or 18, you can download with the following commands:
wget http://bootstrap.eossweden.eu/ubuntu-16-bootstrap/
wget http://bootstrap.eossweden.eu/ubuntu-18-bootstrap/

By default, tar uses gzip to de-compress .tgz files. Gzip is single threaded so it is preferred to use pigz which you may need to install. pigz uses all cores to compress and de-compress files.

Use like:
tar --use-compress-program=pigz -xvf /path/to/bootstrap.tgz

After untaring, be sure to replace the contents of your block and state directories with the downloaded contents.

Also be sure to run "chown -R" on these directories and make them owned by the user you're running nodeos with.

These dumps are created with both the history_plugin and history_api_plugin disabled since it was deprecated as of EOS 1.2.x. You will need to make sure these plugins are disabled in your config.ini before this dump will work.

Other settings that were used that may or may not hinder this working were:
chain-state-db-size-mb = 16384
reversible-blocks-db-size-mb = 4096


After you start nodeos it should work. Your node is now, probably, only two-to-three hours behind at maximum.
