"Error getting symlink path" when trying to delete backups


Good afternoon,

I have a bunch of old backups that I’m trying to delete from the web interface. They’re already marked for deletion but are not getting deleted during the nightly cleanup, so I’m clicking on the “Delete now” button. When I do, I get an error, and lots of this shows up in urbackup.log.

2019-05-14 15:10:11: ERROR: Error getting symlink path in pool of "/path/to/backup/files"

This is later followed up with errors about being unable to delete those same files.

Would anyone have any idea what this error means?
