I have been trying to learn the ins and out of the Solana CLI interface to better understand the chain but I keep running into a wall when I attempt to send SOL using CLI. I created my keypair and pubkey following Solana Cookbooks instructions but it errors out. Transaction attempts to finalize then gives me the error code of “Error: unable to confirm transaction. This can happen in situations such as transaction expiration and insufficient fee-payer funds” However im using the Mainnet Beta and after checking my keypair balance I have more than enough SOL to complete the transaction. Code:

solana transfer --from /home/chasebry13/.config/solana/id.json 5cAXKjr1n159QqREaq5VGHvWnN2ZufBFvK486wEzfibL 0.001 --allow-unfunded-recipient --fee-payer  /home/chasebry13/.config/solana/id.json

Expected transaction to confirm but continues to fail over and over again
