@Kenneth #17:

I verified that the settings recommended in comment #17 change nothing (several kernel updates later)

a) if anything, it should be nofile and not nfile
b) /etc/security/limits.conf may be altered but any settings there are ignored
c) ulimit is a bash parameter and cannot be applied system-wide.
d) even when called from the command line with as little as soft limit of 1024 (the default) Deja-Dup/duplicity works fine.

@abautu #19:

Nice try, nevertheless, it does not make Deja-Dup work either.

As I mentioned before: It's not a problem of duplicity but of Deja-Dup.
