I backed up my home folder with deja dup. I then reinstall Ubuntu 16.04. After all updates and software installation, I tried to restore my backup with no luck. It hangs saying input and output error
I had a similar problem trying to reload my Documents, Pictures, and Videos files. I saved my backup to 16Gbyte USB stick under 14.04 LTS. Somehow the folder were I placed the backup got placed under a different directory on the USB stick. Try looking around in the directory, or on the device where you stored the backup. Once I got the correct path to the backup, deja dup worked and restored my files to those directories under 16.04 LTS.
