    Like always, we don't want to see "an error about some directory" but the exact message. The first one can only make us guess, the second one might give some clue.

    I don't use Deja Dup,
    But the following should help you...

    Deja Dup
    The first screenshot suggests you can exclude the entire root partition

    https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/DejaDup/Screenshots

    A short summary of Deja Dup

    https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/DejaDup/HowItWorks

    Since Deja Dup is a wrapper around duplicity, the following describes duplicity documentation

    http://duplicity.nongnu.org/docs.html

    The online MAN pages for duplicity is the next link.
    If your backup is very simple (eg just your home directory, you'd still need to know about full and incremental backups), you might consider simply creating a command, then save it as an executable shell script

    You should post your Deja Dup configuration and error.

    If either is a graphic window, make a screenshot.
    If you can get an error in your logs (I don't know if there is a cuplicity log or if errors might be written to the journal)

    In other words, you should try to post exact, detailed info about the error and your configuration.
