Duply no longer working on Fedora 39

I updated to Fedora Linux 39 and duply no longer works.
I run duply home status and get greeted by

Start duply v2.5.1, time is 2023-11-08 10:07:42.

Sorry. A fatal ERROR occured:

The installed version 1.2.3 is incompatible with duply v2.5.1.
You should upgrade your version of duplicity to at least v2.1.0 or
use the older duply version 2.4.3 from https://duply.net.

Any suggestions what to do?

Report a bug against duply

What do they mean with “version 1.2.3”? Version of duplicity ?

I guess they mean that the currently installed version of duplicity (which is 1.2.3) is incompatible with duply 2.5.1.

Thanks, I will report the bug.

I would file a bug against duplicity package as its out of date it seems.
Current upstream is 2.1.4 the 1.2.4 is 9 months old it seems.

Quick update, new version of duplicity has been released few hours ago. Do upgrade and enjoy peace of mind of having backups again.

pushed to stable without testing/ feedback, that’s never good.


I raise 2251061 – Unexpect dependency python3-setuptools_scm installed on upgrade from 1.2.3 to 2.1.4 as I think its not supposed to install python3-setuptools_scm as a dependency.

About to start testing…
… working with out need to change any config so far.
