    Backup failing under ubuntu 13.10


    I've been using ubuntu 13.04 on my machine and been able to backup with no problems, however since upgrading to 13.10 I seem unable to do so. I get an error message as follows which I'm unsure on how to interpret:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1411, in <module>
      File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1404, in with_tempdir
      File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1386, in main
      File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 572, in incremental_backup
        bytes_written = dummy_backup(tarblock_iter)
      File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 199, in dummy_backup
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 509, in next
        result = self.process(
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 188, in get_delta_iter
        for new_path, sig_path in collated:
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 269, in collate2iters
        relem1 =
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 175, in Iterate
        subpath, val = diryield_stack[-1].next()
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 144, in diryield
        error_handler, Path.append, (path, filename))
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 37, in check_common_error
        return function(*args)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 517, in append
        return self.__class__(self.base, self.index + (ext,))
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 497, in __init__
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 513, in setdata
        self.symtext = os.readlink(
    OSError: [Errno 38] Function not implemented: '/run/user/1000/gvfs/,user=myuser/etc/'
    If anyone could give me some insight into what's going on here or where else I should be looking for help then that would be hugely appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    I have the same issue... if I find a solution, I'll post here.

    Here's what mine says:

    Backup Failed

    Giving up on request after 5 attempts, last status 500 Internal Server Error
