My webpage is not rendering the a table with sample code below. I can see on the Browser Console the promised block objects but this message shows:

Source map error: request failed with status 403 Resource URL: https://cdn.ethers.io/scripts/ethers-v4.min.js Source Map URL: ethers.min.js.map[Learn More]

I believe this could be the issue of not getting the page table udpdated with the information.

-blockgeeks code:

<script src="./web3.min.js"></script>
<script src="./web3.min.js"></script>

    window.onload = function() {
    async function updateBlocks() {
        let web3 = new Web3(new Web3.givenProvider);
        let latest = await web3.eth.getBlockNumber();

        for (var i=0; i < 10; i++) {
            let block = await web3.eth.getBlock(latest-i);
    function printBlock(block) {
        var table = document.getElementById('blocks');
        var row = table.insertRow(-1);
        var cell1 = row.insertCell(0);
        var cell2 = row.insertCell(1);
        var cell3 = row.insertCell(2);
        cell1.innerHTML = block.number;
        cell2.innerHTML = block.hash;
        cell3.innerHTML = block.timestamp;

Issue was tied to problem described here:


Issue solved with ganache-cli and change givenProvider with Web3.providers.HttpProvider instead.
