In Ubuntu the strategy is to develop new packages only for the newest release. Adding packages to an older release is only rarely done, usually by backporting a package.

I do not see any complicated dependencies for restic, so it might be possible to use the package for bionic (or cosmic) on xenial, without the need of any modification. I suggest that you just try this.

Can you help with this problem?
