Bug Description

Ran into this error on 17.10 which is allegedly fixed on 18.04: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/deja-dup/+bug/1734499 (I think I did the original backup on either 17.04 or 17.10)

I upgraded to 18.04 and now the problem is that when I put the USB stick in, Backups asks to install duplicity, and I click Install, but it doesn't install (the progress bar hangs and if I take the USB stick out and put it back in again it pops up the installation request again).

After leaving it for many minutes, I get the error:

Backup Failed
client did not authorize action
