Having the some issues getting connected with a pi... Tried everything in this thread.

When running... sudo openvpn TorGuard.USA-DALLAS.conf

I get the following

It never completes or moves forward from here.

How did you figure it out? What did you do to fix it? I have the same problem.

Unfortunately I never got it working in the end. I did manage to get the VPN to connect but I’d made such a mess of Linux with all the things I’d tried that I gave up. 
 

when it did work the VPN speed was way too slow. OpenVPN was too heavy for my pi. 
I ended up buying an Asus router and used the VPN client in the software... to be honest it was sooooo much easier.

better use wireguard instead, setup is quite easy and should be similar if not equal to this:

 

rpi3 is restricted with 100Mb LAN, but rpi4/rock4... have 1Gb LAN and work nicely, I have 6 rocks connected over torguards wireguard since wireguard was in beta stage and I did not reboot since then, still connected.
