Comment 17 for bug 875676

There is a disconnect between Ubuntu distribution and upstream distribution
(me). Ubuntu will not, repeat will not, allow changes that add
functionality, or upgrade the version number of a product in a
distribution. I can't live with that, so my distribution version changes
with every release. Before you upgrade manually, apt remove the old
version of duplicity and install from one of the sources below to stay

Please upgrade to the current version of duplicity. This will assure that
any bugs fixed since your release are available and my fix your issue.

There are three options:

   - Release tarball Install -
   - Daily duplicity builds -
   - Stable duplicity builds -
