Data recovery does not work with Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS

Asked by Hans-Dieter Strunk on 2018-10-01

I installed Ubuntu18.04.1 LTS on a new laptop with the latest updates. I tried to recover my data from my old laptop running Ubuntu 16.04 with Deja Dup.

It doesn't work. Error message : (translation from German) Storage location can not be accessed. But the file manager shows the data recovery files.

Actually, this is kind of a buggy/counter intuitive functioning.

If you hit cancel, and on the main screen of dejadup you click "Storage location" you can change the location there.

Even if you change it from the locate backup files dialog, it will glitch and say, your google isn't setup.

I think this might help, or I may have totally misunderstood. :) Thanks

When it is pointed at the directory it responds with "NO backups to restore" It does not find the duplicity files.

Can you help with this problem?
