testing restore fails with "unknown reason"
Last modified: 2015-02-18 06:17:46 EST
deja-dup suggests to do a restore test, prompts me for the encryption password, then starts to test.
After a while, deja-dup pops up a notification saying, it failed, and the message box contains "unknown reason".
As a side effect, this also prevents the "last time backed up" setting from being updated, and consequently, it backs up again sooner than expected, asking again to do the restore test.
Any easy suggestions how I could trace the reason for the "unknown reason" failure?
Déjà Dup bug reporting guidelines:
rpm -q deja-dup duplicity
The file /tmp/deja-dup.gsettings after running the following line (you may want to scrub the file of any incriminating file names or details):
gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.DejaDup > /tmp/deja-dup.gsettings
The file /tmp/deja-dup.log after running the appropriate line below and replicating the problem (you may want to scrub the log of any incriminating file names or details):
* If you're having problems restoring:
DEJA_DUP_DEBUG=1 deja-dup --restore | tail -n 1000 > /tmp/deja-dup.log
You might want to file the results directly at https://bugs.launchpad.net/deja-dup/+filebug

If you are using Fedora 20,
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
