@Marco, I'm surprised that you haven't seen it, because I've seen it often enough to get annoyed at it. Unfortunately it's really, really, really hard to google for quotes, so it's hard for me to conjure up more examples... but now that you know, you might start to notice it!

This sounds like a perfect match - you've solved the mystery! Now, why do people write that way outside of tex.... nevermind! :)

Thanks Roland! Your answer makes me realize that my question is inaccurate -- I was referring to written texts, not command-line commands. Apologies!

Apparently nobody knows what this error message means ... what a fruitless waste of my rep! :'-(

@strapa - good idea! I did send a question on Launchpad but omitted this webpage. That might work!

That forum post refers to instructions that are no longer valid. The instruction webpage clearly states to use a newer tool instead, which is what I tried to use in the question above. The only difference is that I'm not booting off a USB "LiveCD" but running it locally, because the encrypted folder in question is not local but on an external disk.
