error but not really

Thanks for filing the detailed report! Based on the behavior you described, it sounds like borgmatic is running the `on_error` hook only once the `after_backup` hook fails. Which sounds like correct behavior to me: Any cleanup steps you might run in an after backup hook are probably important to do, and should trigger an error hook if they fail. However, if you have other expectations, please talk about what you'd like to see instead! Or perhaps some additional logging would make it clearer as to what's going on? Thanks.

Using Docker-compose to make backups but fails and gives me errorlog

I don't think it has anything to do with a computer hardware MAC. I think it's referring to a different concept: A cryptographic [Message Authentication Code](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMAC). My understanding is that it allows Borg to validate that each piece of your data is correctly stored and hasn't become corrupted. I can't think of any problems/downsides of that, except perhaps a small performance hit versus the "none" encryption mode.

Using Docker-compose to make backups but fails and gives me errorlog

If you run the `borg` command by itself, it doesn't know anything about borgmatic's config file, so it won't use any of the settings from it. So you can try the whole `borg prune` command above, which effectively provides those "keep" settings to Borg directly on the command-line.

Using Docker-compose to make backups but fails and gives me errorlog

I'm not sure that using an unencrypted repository would be a problem, but it does look like it's giving you a warning and trying to prompt for input ("Do you want to continue?") So you could try running the `borg prune` command manually from within the container and see what happens if you answer "y" to the prompt:

Thanks for the detailed bug report. Based on the error message you included, it looks like Borg isn't finding a file it expects to find in any initialized Borg repository, `/mnt/repository/config` in this case.

Cool, thanks for the MR! It's great to get feedback on this kind of thing, because it's hard to know how clear a particular name is without it.

Can't invoke scripts before/after

Glad that was it! I'm adding info about this to the documentation, as it's not at all obvious from the error message. Thanks again for filing.

Thank you for reporting this! I managed to get a reproduction of the same error message by using tabs to indent the commands instead of spaces. If you indeed have tabs there, could you try replacing them with the requisite number of spaces?

Add validate-borgmatic-config command

Cool! If you like, I can link to the Ansible role from the [borgmatic documentation](https://torsion.org/borgmatic/docs/how-to/set-up-backups/#other-ways-to-install) when this has merged.
