My way of fixing Client on Ubuntu (16)

I have been working hard to try to fix why I have not got the ubuntu client to urbackup to work. After many expriment, I came to the following, which solved many problems.

Settings / File Backups / Default Folders to Save: -x -f -d /boot -n boot

Client ubuntu

sudo uninstall_urbackupclient
rm -Rf /usr/local/var/urbackup
sudo rm /usr/local/var/urbackup/server_idents.txt

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver 370C85D709D26407
echo “deb [arch=amd64]$(lsb_release -sc) $(lsb_release -sc) main” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/datto-linux-agent.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dattobd-dkms dattobd-utils

sudo su
TF=mktemp && wget “” -O $TF && sh $TF; rm $TF
sudo apt install -f

If you get three choices as well, option 1.

sudo urbackupclientctl add-backupdir -x -f -d /boot -n boot

((sudo apt-get remove --purge urbackup-server))
sudo urbackupclientctl start --full --client (<–IPClient)
sudo urbackupclientbackend -i -v debug
sudo urbackupclientctl list-backupdirs

sudo urbackupclientctl add-backupdir -d /boot
