I thought I’d updated my Duplicati installation to 126.96.36.199_beta_2018-04-02 the other day. Over the last couple of days I noticed I was getting backup warnings saying the “retention policy” option was not supported.
I cleared my browser cache and checked by backup configuration and the Smart Retention option is no longer there.
I also see the following in the logs:
8 May 2018 22:35: Error in updater
System.Exception: Found unexpected file: /Users/david/Library/Application Support/Duplicati/updates/188.8.131.52/OSXTrayHost/rumps.pyc

… and my version is now showing as back at 184.108.40.206_beta_2017-08-01.
Any idea why the update failed, and if there’s anything I should do before trying again?
