I have a disk full with backups that I created with deja-dup sometime in 2014. Now the time has come to restore one of the files. To do so, I have clicked 'Restore missing files' in the Nautilus context menu. But deja-dup returns with an error. I have tried many recovery options, but each time it boils down to the following error message. I really would like this file back, please help.

Some extra information: - I have tried to clear the cache and tried re-installing deja-dup. To no avail. - There are several similar questions around here with some solutions. All of those have failed in my case. - Ubuntu 16.04, 32-bit.

This is the error message I get:
