Ubuntu: deja-dup fails to restore home directory



Question:

I backed up my home directory with deja-dup, installed Ubuntu 13.04, and attempted to restore the files, but after chosing the date of the backup to restore and chosing the location where to put the files, I get a "Failed with an unknown error" message:

Traceback (most recent call last):    File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1412, in <module>      with_tempdir(main)    File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1405, in with_tempdir      fn()    File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1339, in main      restore(col_stats)    File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 630, in restore      restore_get_patched_rop_iter(col_stats)):    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/patchdir.py", line 522, in     Write_ROPaths      for ropath in rop_iter:    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/patchdir.py", line 495, in integrate_patch_iters  final_ropath = patch_seq2ropath( normalize_ps( patch_seq ) )    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/patchdir.py", line 475, in patch_seq2ropath      misc.copyfileobj( current_file, tempfp )    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/misc.py", line 166, in copyfileobj      buf = infp.read(blocksize)    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/librsync.py", line 80, in read  self._add_to_outbuf_once()    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/librsync.py", line 94, in _add_to_outbuf_once  raise librsyncError(str(e))  librsyncError: librsync error 103 while in patch cycle  

I tried to restore earlier backup points, but all of them fail. I installed Ubuntu 12.10 again and tried to restore from there (to have the same version of deja-dup etc.), same problem. Any ideas how I could rescue my data? By now, I'm pretty desperate.


Solution:1

Possibly you are not selecting correct folder (as I was). Try>> Is it possible to restore only one directory with the backup utility?

Apparently the "/home " directory is not possible in deja dup but the /home/user is available.
