View Full Version : Backup & Restore fails on Ubuntu 16.04

September 6th, 2017, 11:25 AM
I am running Ubuntu 16.04 with the built in Deja-Dup program. I have had this running now for almost a year, doing daily backups to an external HDD.
Now I have hit a wall, I have a few programs not working properly, so I Googled help and tried, unsucessfuly, to repair the faults.
So, I thought I will do a restore and cure the problems that way. I have noticed that due to errors, the backup hasn't been run for the last 30 days.
I will paste the errors found on restore and hope someone out there knows a lot more than I do, which is basically nothing.

Traceback (most recent call last):

A thing I noticed, looking for directory usr/bin/duplicity. that it is not listed as a folder in /bin...... Must mean something, but what and how doI repair the machine.
