I sent a transaction about 6 hours ago. After a few blocks going by with no confirmation I figured the network was clogging up again and I had probably sent my transaction with too low a fee.
So I finally give the RBF feature in Electrum a go. I had set the transaction as replaceable when I originally sent it. I right click, hit increase fee, up the slider on the fee and hit ok (I am not selecting this as final if that matters), Sign and broadcast the transaction, but I get an error message:
"error: The transaction was rejected by network rules. (258: txn-mempool-conflict)"
Am I doing something wrong here?
Original transaction ID for referance 31f0197dc9693a4a68083abc2702f169bc307b45a4089b2a2ec04b990bb9c502
