deju dup don't restore in Ubuntu 18.04

Asked by marcuscutrim@gmail.com on 2018-05-03

I did a upgrade in my Ubuntu jumping from a 14.04 LTS to a 18.04 LTS, but when I try to restore my files from a external HD, I got a failure message from deja dup. My backup has all files in there, in 52MB duplicity files. I used a password for restore. Can you guy's help me? I really need that files. Thanks.

I'm having problems too. Just upgraded from 16.04 and my backups are also encrypted with a password.
Do you see any error messages? I get an error related to gpg and not having a password. I think that Deja Dup uses the old gpg and Ubuntu now uses gpg2 as default, which means it needs a pinentry program, which means it never asks for a password.
Does any of this sound familiar to you?
Anyway, I don't have a workaround yet. I'm trying to see how to use duplicity directly from the command line and see if I can restore my files this way.
