CollectionsError: No backup chains found (solved)


I got the below error when restoring from backup after upgrading from v0.30 to v0.40.

CollectionsError: No backup chains found

It was caused by the below line. I failed to add the directory encrypted after backup

sudo -E duplicity restore --force file:///tmp/home/user-data/backup /home/user-data/

I made the below correction and the restore worked.

sudo -E duplicity restore --force file:///tmp/home/user-data/backup/encrypted /home/user-data/

I hope this helps someone.
