Hi everybody,

Backup failed: Giving up after 5 attempts. BackendException: Error running 'ncftpls -f /tmp/duplicity-k8O7p_-tempdir/mkstemp-Ciuk_1-1 -F -t 300 -o useCLNT=0,useHELP_SITE=0  -P '22' -l ''': returned 1, with output:
 Invalid reply: "SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_8.2p1 Ubuntu-4ubuntu0.3"
 ncftpls: cannot open invalid reply from server.

My config is:

Any help on the error message would be grately appricated.

Hi...Linux servers that are not information base servers ordinarily are fine, I test reestablishing all mine couples of months.

Information base servers ought to likewise have one more method for reinforcements and you can reestablish the VM with the reinforcement however may have to drop data set and import outer reinforcements.
