Deja-Dup reports "Bad encryption password", and hangs.

Asked by Dave Allen

I have installed Deja Dup in Ubuntu 10.04, and backed up a disk. When I want to update the backup, I get the message above. But no-one seems to know how I can see or change the password. I am not asked to give, so I assume it is stored somewhere. Where?

Go to Applications->Accessories->Passwords and Encryption Keys. Then open your 'login' keyring and find your Deja Dup passphrase. You can delete or view it from there.

In modern day Ubuntu, this advice changes to:

Search in the dash for "Passwords and Keys" and open that.

Can you help with this problem?
