Welcome to the forum @Houd

I don’t upgrade Ubuntu much, but isn’t an upgrade supposed to keep old data? Or did you do clean install?

Are you doing a regular Restoring files from a backup or Restoring files if your Duplicati installation is lost? Getting back to regular operation would mean more move or setup of things like jobs or maybe databases.

Where did you say to restore to?


Especially if you got Duplicati set up for regular use (see above question), a small test restore may solve mystery of where files are, because you can watch all its action in About → Show log → Live → Verbose.
