Blackholed canister "does not exist" on the IC dashboard


The blackholed balance checker canister, 5vdms-kaaaa-aaaap-aa3uq-cai that uses to monitor and top-up 3rd-party canisters exists, but IC dashboard shows “An error occurred while loading the canister” when trying to query information about the canister.

Any idea why this might be happening? Is our blackhole a ghost? :scream:

I know for a fact this canister exists (otherwise our application wouldn’t function :sweat_smile:)

I can verify through dfx that this canister exists and has no controllers.

Canister exists

% dfx canister --network=ic id 5vdms-kaaaa-aaaap-aa3uq-cai

Canister has no controllers

% dfx canister --network=ic info 5vdms-kaaaa-aaaap-aa3uq-cai                                                                             
Module hash: 0xe2e8a67dbfa06d14a332048abda50f19daf3bd20f51d78594e97d5ec0b8e5174

We’ll take a look. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.


A fix for this will be released tomorrow.
