Bug Description

I'm running deja-dup 36.3-1 on Manjaro Linux, backing up to an SFTP server. Recently the access is failing with the following GPG error message:

Error processing remote manifest ( GPG Failed, see log below:
===== Begin GnuPG log =====
gpg: WARNING: "--no-use-agent" is an obsolete option - it has no effect
gpg: AES encrypted data
gpg: encrypted with 1 passphrase
gpg: decryption failed: Bad session key
===== End GnuPG log =====

The configuration is unchanged and the same setup used to work previously.

Hmm. That means the wrong encryption password was provided. But we usually show a nicer message than that when it happens...

The issue wasn't the password, I double- and triple-checked that. With the last package update the issue is gone though, so I'm closing this ticket.

Changed in deja-dup:
