Turku Backup System

Bug Description

I had a backup source that was failing to attic archive correctly but the error was not showing up in the turku admin web UI. I only discovered this because a previous rsync failure was logged, but became suspicious when no recent success or failures were logged.

Digging in the turku-storage.log on the backup source's storage unit I saw the failure (with UUIDs out):

After creating a backup copy of the archive and then using "attic check --repair" on it, the next backup succeeded and logged correctly.
