    Backup Restore: Failed with an unknown error.

    Hi All,

    The hard drive on my laptop died and had it replaced. I have done a clean install and I am attempting to restore from an external hard drive i backed up onto.
    I have tried copying the files locally, clearning the .cache directory for duplicity and ive tried different restore dates. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled duplicity and dejadupe and have tried to restore from the command line. Anyone got any ideas on what is wrong?

    Re: Backup Restore: Failed with an unknown error.

    I am having the same issue after upgrading to Ubuntu 13.10. I am now trying to restore directory by directory, which seems to work. For example, open Nautilus and go to your Documents folder (supposed that you have backed-up files from the Documents folder). Right-click and select "Restore Missing Files" . Deja-dup will now run an analysis between the current files in the Documents folder and the latest ones in the back-up, and will restore the back-up files where appropriate. Tedious and time consuming, but so far it seems to work

    While trying to restore 1 file via nautilis/revert/deja-dup I got the error listing below. Really a bummer!!!

    Re: Backup Restore: Failed with an unknown error.

    I tried restoring directory and continued to get same error.
    Also, I was able to restore different item from same usb stick and backup about 10 days ago without issues.

    Even the backup failed with same errors suggesting a serious problem with recent updates.
