Hey guys, over my long “career” of Minecraft I have stumbled across a glitch where mining blocks too fast someones leaves some blocks invisible unbroken and when I try to go trough them I just get stuck and to fix it I have to place blocks where I think it is to finally remove it. Gets really annoying when I have to clear a 50 x 50 area in a cave for whatever reasons or generally clearing in the Nether. Does anyone know if there is a fix for this?

5. Disconnect and reconnect
- If all of the above-mentioned methods didn’t help you, you can try disconnecting from the server and reconnecting immediately after.
