Sounds promising! Next time, you can include the `--files` flag if you want to see file-by-file output.

Sounds like there might be a stale lock on BorgBase's side? You could try `borg break-lock username@hostname.repo.borgbase.com` with your actual repository name.

Thanks for your patience as well! Yes, if you're connecting to BorgBase via borgmatic as root, then your SSH key will need to be generated as root. And then that's the key you'll need to give to…

Looks like it's working! Except you'll need to set up SSH keys so that it can connect to BorgBase. I believe these are the steps for that process:…

Is it possible you don't have permissions to the configuration file? Have you tried running `borgmatic create` as root?

Super weird! I assume the configuration file is indeed at `/etc/borgmatic/config.yaml`? Any clues if you run `borgmatic create` with `--verbosity 2`?

Looks like the problem is the space before the `storage:` key!

Failed to start borgmatic backup.

Could I get a peek at your updated configuration file (redacted)? My guess is there's a spacing issue, where some of the options aren't lined up in a section. We're seeing something similar over on…

Aha! Just based on the snippet you posted, it *looks* like you've got an extra space before the `ssh_command` option that's confusing the parser. If you remove that space and make the option line up…

Would it be possible to see your entire configuration file (redacted)? That should allow us to reproduce the error and diagnose it. Thank you for your patience!

UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xb5 in position 118: invalid start byte

Can I get a look at your `/etc/borgmatic.d/._backup1.yaml` configuration file? Or is that the same as `config.yaml` above? And would it possible to see your `borgmatic --verbosity 2` output? That…

Automatically retry backups for n times

In that case, can you try posting your entire (redacted) configuration file and I'll see if I can reproduce the problem? It might be easiest to open a new ticket for that.

That configuration looks correct to me! Can you confirm the version you're running? `borgmatic --version` should do it.

Thank you for taking the time to report this! I totally agree that borgmatic shouldn't blow up with a traceback on "invalid" input. A few questions for you: * Do you have an example of a filename…
