I used this command to sync to the chain

geth --fast --cache=1024 --rpc --rpcaddr "localhost" --rpccorsdomain "*" --rpcport 8545 --rpcapi="db,eth,net,web3,personal,web3" upgradedb

And then when I was nearing the latest block it showed me the log below

Based from the duplicate and unexpected values, it's basically the same thing. Does this mean that I haven't still synced in the Main Network? It's becoming endless unlike the one in the Test Network. My wallet balance isn't updating because of this and I think it's due to --fast needing to have a completely synced chain before updating the balances. Is there a solution to this?

If you see that, you aren't yet synchronized, not even close. You are just done with the block download phase and still running the state downloads. You can see this yourself via the seemingly endless Imported state entries [...] stream of logs. You'll need to wait that out too before your node comes truly online.

But I don't know how long this will take. I'm at processed=78300000 and it's still running.
