    Question backup fails

    Hi y'all, I'm puzzled.
    I use deja-dup to do a weekly backup of my home folder to Google Cloud Storage. It has been working until today. I get a 'Backup Failed' message with the message -

    BackendException: Could not initialize backend: No module named cacerts

    Internet search doesn't have a match for this message.

    I keep Leap updated.

    Any clues for me?

    I am only guessing here. I don't use deja-dup.

    You could try installing the package "ca-certificates-cacert". That contains the security certificates for "cacert". And perhaps that's what is missing.

    Thanks for the response. The backup routine has been working since the upgrade to Leap 15. I installed the package as you suggested, but ... no joy.

    Something changed, somewhere, this past week and broke defa-dup. Perhaps I should go back through the updates to see what changes might have caused this problem.

    i had a similar issue, but with duplicity instead. i downgrade python2-boto from 2.49 to 2.48 and it started working again. hth

    Yep, that's what I found also. I figured out that the 2.49... package is missing the cacerts folder that the cloud services of duplicity requires.

    (deja-dup is just a windowing front-end for duplicity.)
