Install: UnsupportedBackendScheme: scheme not supported in url: s3+http://foo.woof.com/?

Asked by LarryK on 2010-10-05

Hi,

I installed Duplicity with the helpful damontimm [script][1] and [advice][2]. Used current release.

I also created an s3 bucket foo.woof.com. (Not the real name)

But when I run Duplicity (via the script), I get:

`UnsupportedBackendScheme: scheme not supported in url: s3+http://foo.woof.com/`

What should I do? Do I need to make S3 bucket foo.woof.com available via DNS? (I do know how to do that.)
Or something else?

I am using the `--s3-use-new-style` option.

Thanks,

Larry

I also tried with a simple bucket name that does not include dots. Same problem.

Also, another user is having same problem. He downgraded to Duplicity 0.6.06 and then it started working.

DId you try using duplicity directly on the command prompt? Does that work?

Also. Do you have boto installed?

Eventually. Run duplicity with the verbose switch -v9 from command line and from inside your script and post the results here.

It says pretty clearly

UnsupportedBackendScheme

which means that duplicity does not know what to do with 's3+http' in your case, but it should. Scheme is another name for protocol here.

+1 for a workaround until it has been fixed.

Well, I was too impatient. For those on an RPM-based system, check this link:

https://launchpad.net/duplicity/+milestone/0.6.06

I downloaded the package and downgraded it on my CentOS install. Everything works fine again. The command to downgrade on CentOS (i386) is:

yum downgrade --nogpgcheck duplicity duplicity-0.6.06-0.fdr.6.i386.rpm

My thanks to Kenneth for fixing the problem and issuing a patch. See the linked bug report for details.
