I'm having the same issue and I'm not able to find any solution just like:
I have configured deja-dup to:
- daily backup folder ~/Documents (
- to the backup server accessible over LAN or OpenVPN
- with more than 7TB free space
- using sftp connection
It worked like a charm 4 years without any changes. It stopped working after apt upgrade most probably 6.4.2020 (dd.mm.yyyy) - last backup date is 6.4.2020
Now, it trys to do "clean backup", but with the well known result. The Traceback looks quite simmilar, it looks that it fails in the incremental (just like here backup-failed-deja-dup) and even clean backup because of the same reason.
Traceback (innermost last): File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1555, in <module> with_tempdir(main) File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1541, in with_tempdir fn() File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1393, in main do_backup(action) File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1414, in do_backup sync_archive() File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1204, in sync_archive copy_to_local(fn) File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1146, in copy_to_local fileobj = globals.backend.get_fileobj_read(fn) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/backend.py", line 676, in get_fileobj_read self.get(filename, tdp) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/backend.py", line 395, in inner_retry % (n, e.__class__.__name__, util.uexc(e))) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/util.py", line 79, in uexc return ufn(unicode(e).encode('utf-8')) UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc5 in position 19: ordinal not in range(128)
I just try
sudo apt install --reinstall duplicity deja-dup python-minimal
What could I try next? Any ideas?
Please if there is anyone with the same problem, similar TraceBack, and have any other information which is not provided in this description, and even anyone without reputation points, feel free and edit this post to avoid unnecessary fragmentation. It would be nice to make all related information at one place, including links to the other asked questions or related informations somewhere on the net.
