Under which circumstances an incremental backup might get corrupt / unrestorable?

I read the following in wikipedia:

Since Duplicati produces incremental backups, a corrupt or missing volume can render an entire backup chain useless.

Would anyone explain please, thank you.

This is outdated. It is referring to the old Duplicati version 1
