Description Guy Streeter 2006-08-18 11:10:25 EDT
Trying to use duplicity to make an incremental backup, I'm getting this (after
entering my gpg key):

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 373, in ?
    if __name__ == "__main__": main()
  File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 362, in main
  File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 342, in check_last_manifest
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/duplicity/", line 128, in
    if local_manifest: remote_manifest = local_manifest
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'local_manifest' referenced before assignment

This is completely reproducible.
It doen't look like the duplicity package or the python package has changed
since the last time this worked sucessfully.
The destination is a file:// url.
Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2006-08-19 20:03:09 EDT
Can you please provide the command you're using for duplicity? BTW, hopefully 
you're using the correct file:///foo/ and not the wrong file://foo/ ;-)
Comment 2 Guy Streeter 2006-08-23 17:33:31 EDT
$ duplicity --exclude=/home/hsv/streeter/ext-trees/
--exclude=/home/hsv/streeter/tmp/ /home/hsv/streeter
Comment 3 Guy Streeter 2006-09-12 15:55:05 EDT
I updated to duplicity-0.4.2-3.fc5 and I still see the same failure.
Comment 4 Guy Streeter 2006-09-13 15:11:45 EDT
I emptied out my backup directory, and the problem went away.
Comment 5 Michael J Knox 2006-09-13 15:18:05 EDT
Interesting. After you have recreated your backup, if you backup again, do you
still get a trace back?
Comment 6 Guy Streeter 2006-09-13 15:32:22 EDT
No, I've run the command several times and it is working.
Comment 7 Robert Scheck 2006-10-29 13:16:26 EST
Can I assume, that your problem is solved or were you able to reproduce the 
traceback in the meantime?
Comment 8 Guy Streeter 2006-10-30 10:30:38 EST
I have not seen this problem since wiped my backup directory and started fresh.
