When I learned I didn’t have Duplicati running as root, I followed the advice in this thread to do so. Since then, I’ve had several problems getting backups running reliably.
Initially, Duplicati complained about thousands of “Files missing from the remote storage, please run repair,” or “Files missing from local database” (that message from memory, may not be precise). I assumed that switching to root meant it couldn’t handle the backups made under the normal user, so I deleted my backups, deleting remote files, and basically starting over. That worked, once. Successful backups were made. But then, when the scheduled backups tried to run again, I get the same errors.
Trying to delete all the backups to start over again, I am trying to import my backup configurations from files, but Duplicati just sits there spinning, with the button saying “Importing…” and it never finishes. Previously, this took milliseconds, so I don’t know what’s wrong.
Can anyone advise? I’m not sure what to do next.
Duplicati - 22.214.171.124_beta_2020-01-18
Duplicati’s logs don’t appear to be capturing anything when this happens.
