I'm trying to set up an automated backup with duplicity on Amazon S3, but I keep getting a weird error that doesn't show up on Google searches.

machina:~# duplicity --version
duplicity 0.6.14

Here is the script I'm using:

#!/bin/bash

export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=????
export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=????
export PASSPHRASE=????

duplicity --encrypt-key=A36FFD9E --sign-key DA5D5B8B --s3-european-buckets --s3-use-new-style /source/folder/ s3+http://[bucket].s3.amazonaws.com

export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=
export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=
export PASSPHRASE=

...and the output:

machina:~# ./backup.sh 
Local and Remote metadata are synchronized, no sync needed.
Last full backup date: none
No signatures found, switching to full backup.

I've tried running the script multiple times, to no avail. Has anyone already encountered this?

If the person who downvoted could be so king as to explain why..? –  Executifs Sep 10 '11 at 18:31
    
Dunno why they downvoted you. I was going to suggest, though, that you post this in a duplicity-specific forum. Do they exist? –  e40 Sep 10 '11 at 21:55
