Backup suddenly failing

duplicity-talk mailing list
Hello, all.

I have been running daily backups without incident for a while, but they are no suddenly failing. The error message says:

Error opening file “/run/media/name/My Passport/new-host/duplicity-inc.20190105T014039Z.to.20190106T211411Z.vol12.difftar.gpg”: Input/output error

I searched in Nautilus for 12.difftar.gpg and saw 8 files, but none of them match the filename above.

How do I fix what is wrong?

All suggestions gratefully received.

This is an OS-level error.  I am assuming from the name that this is an
external hard drive.  Are you able to create other files in that
directory, or on that drive?  Is there anything in your system logs?
