My Déjà Dup is missing an option to back up to Nextcloud. This is on 20.04 LTS. I see only three: Google Drive, Network Server, and Local Folder. Is there some way I can add it back?

I do see the Nextcloud option on a different computer running 18.04 LTS.

Whew, that took some digging. The Déjà Dup team says that, as of 39.0, "Nextcloud accounts will now appear as webdav network server accounts." So the new way to use a Nextcloud storage location is to select "Network Server" and type in a URI using a dav or davs scheme.

For example: davs://example.com/remote.php/dav/files/USERNAME/ . Then it'll ask for the usual inputs: username (yes, even though it is in the URI), password, and encryption preference.

You can see a nearly correct URI in the Files app:

screen grab of Nextcloud Files app settings showing webdav URL

You can copy that URI and change the scheme to davs (or dav) to create a URI that will work in Deja Dup.
