So I've been using the command duplicity ~ gdocs://my_folder_here to back up my /home folder to Google Drive periodically, and recently ran into the --progress argument that is supposed to show me the progress of the backup. However, when I tried using it, the result was very different from what I expected: it just keeps printing an empty loading bar every three seconds and ETA Stalled! and eventually the 100% bar when the backup completes.

Is there any way for me to fix this?

  • Have you tried fixing the error? Maybe that's messing up the progress bar. – Organic Marble May 27 '18 at 22:44
  • I removed the .dbus folder, error is gone but it didn't affect the progress bar. – SakoDaemon May 28 '18 at 11:48

This is a very long standing bug in duplicity (since at least 2015). See https://bugs.launchpad.net/duplicity/+bug/1482841
