Dry run on brand new setup fails #507

What I'm trying to do and why

I'm trying to a dry run of my new borg repo.
After going trough the config.yaml and running borg --init i do a dry run. (init runs fine)

borgmatic -n -v 2

image

Don't see any good indication of what is actually going wrong.
I'm very new to using both borg and borgmatic, so i might have missed something obvious, sorry if thats the case.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Environment

borgmatic version: 1.5.23

borgmatic installation method: Docker (b3vis/borgmatic)

Borg version: 1.2.0

Python version: 3.9.7

Thank you for filing this and providing the helpful log and configuration info! So here's what I think is going on:

  • borgmatic is invoking borg compact --dry-run
  • Borg is responding by displaying its general command usage information and exiting with an error, which is Borg's way of saying "--dry-run is not supported for the compact sub-command." It's also possible that some of Borg's usage is getting truncated.

So I think the fix here is for borgmatic to be smart enough to skip calling borg compact altogether when a dry run is requested. In the interim as a work-around, you can try invoking borgmatic create --dry-run which will skip compacting.
