When I click on a computer to check on the statistics, the page shows the last server contact on the previous day although I just reported results.

This is because the server that sends us such things as time of last contact is running about 80,000 seconds behind the main one. When this happens it is not uncommon to see random errors such as you are describing.

Not quite. Uploading is not the same thing as reporting.

The server 'last contact' time should be updated when you see lines like:

13/03/2020 18:53:20 | SETI@home | Sending scheduler request: To report completed tasks.
13/03/2020 18:53:20 | SETI@home | Reporting 11 completed tasks
13/03/2020 18:53:20 | SETI@home | Not requesting tasks: "no new tasks" requested via Manager

Edit - interesting side-note on Rob's post. In my list of computers, I can see

Computer	Last contact
ID: 8313133	13 Mar 2020, 18:53:11 UTC
But on the detail page for Computer 8313133, it still says

Last time contacted server	12 Mar 2020, 17:28:35 UTC

the details in your host list is apparently updated near real time.

individual host details pages are tied to the replica, so it's behind.

And at the moment, it's a long, long, long way behind. Almost 27 hours now, and still growing.
