Message "Doesn't implement mount" when started automatically. Ok when starte manually.

Asked by Are Dommasnes on 2019-10-30

Dejadup (Ubuntu Backup) on Ubuntu 18.04 has been running fine with automatic scheduling (daily) until approx. a week ago, but then it started giving the message "Scheduled backup delayed. Volume doesn't implement mount". If I push the button "Back up Now" the backup starts and completes without problems.
The backup medium is a WD MY Cloud Mirror 4 TB, which now is about half full. Using Samba for the connection.

I’m sorry things aren’t working!

I haven’t seen similar reports of that message lately. It indicates something going wrong between Deja Dup and your gvfs daemon from GNOME. Have you logged out / rebooted since this started happening? Kicking gvfs in the bit might help.

Thank you for answering.

Good news: Deja Dup on my machine has recovered by itself,
without any action from me to repair it.

The auto backup stopped working 26 October, and it started working again
1 November.

I stop the machine each night (power off) and start it again in the
morning. Deja Dup tries
to start auto backup soon after the machine has been started . During
the period when I
got the error message from Deja Dup I started the backup manually when I
noticed it.

The machine was also rebooted when required by updates. So yes, I have
logged out / rebooted several times during the period Deja Dup misbehaved.
This probably is equivalent to several good kicks in the bit?

The machine works fine for my needs now, but if you think it is worth
looking for the
cause of the problem, I am willing to answer further questions and
supply you with any
logs you ask for.
