I'm on Linux Mint 16 64-bit KDE using BOINC version 7.2.7.

I have 8 finished tasks for SETI@home that keep attempting to transfer but don't. Is something wrong on the server side? I have at least two more tasks that will complete soon so the pending total will be 10.

I'm not getting much for error messages though there is now a "project backoff" counter for each of the transfers. In the event log I do see an error message "project file upload handler missing".

I've completely uninstalled everything and reinstalled it. I've restarted my computer. My next step is to reset the project and lose the work I've done. Before I do that does anyone have a hint that could help me out?

For one, that version of BOINC is fairly old and most likely has some bugs.

Try at least 7.2.42.

All of my uploads are going through just fine.
