My backups are failing with a message
The database has version 7 but the largest supported version is 6.
I’m running Default (Experimental) channel and my current version is:
Same as the base install version: 188.8.131.52_experimental_2017-03-13
New update is recognized, but when I try to activate it, I’m losing connection to server. After restart, I can find this in my logs:
System.Exception: Found unexpected file: /Users/patryk/Library/Application Support/Duplicati/updates/184.108.40.206/OSXTrayHost/rumps.pyc

Should I just delete this
I’m not well versed on the Mac side of things but there was a shift in how the updates were handled (at least on Windows) which MIGHT be part of what’s going on.
I don’t even know what “rumps.pyc” does, but I’d suggest moving it to somewhere else and doing a test run rather than deleting it.
My GUESS is that you’re probably going to end up running a manual install over your current installation to get over the change-in-update-process hump.
The error message means that Duplicati has updated, but is now running the previous version.
.pyc files are “Python compiled files”:
rumps.py is a library used on OSX to show the tray-icon, and for some reason it is compiled, and this creates a
Duplicati is very strict about running updates as it needs to be 100% sure that the update was not tampered with.
You can delete the file, but it will be auto-created again.
Instead, just remove the
Duplicati.app and install the latest version again, as this will run without the updates.
Looks like it did the trick! Thanks @kenkendk!
