Backup result message nonsense when some folders failed AND a verification test was done

Bug Description

There are two bugs here; I'm describing the second, layered on the first:

The first is that even though I have explicitly listed ~/.cache in the folders to ignore, I get a complaint that it failed to back up something in .cache.

the second bug is that when it does a password/restore verification test (which it does every two months), I end up with a completion message that makes no sense: it tells me that the test succeeded, but then lists a couple of files, suggesting maybe that they were the only ones which were backed up? Or the only ones for which the restore test was successful?

See attached graphics.

I'll take this bug as the first part. That's just been fixed in master.

The second part... I think we already have another bug for that.

This bug was fixed in the package deja-dup - 38.3-1

deja-dup (38.3-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release:
    - If some files couldn't be backed up, don't override that message
      with successful verification message. (lp: #1371613)
    - Tell user how much free space is needed when backup location is tiny
      (lp: #1103567)
