Urbackupclientctl status should show the proper reason why it couldn't connect

Several times already I’ve got the problem, that an urbackupclient can’t connect. Unfortunately the information which urbackupclientctl status returns is absolutely unusable:

“internet_status”: “connecting_failed”

It’s correct. But doesn’t tell me anything I don’t know already. The only way to get proper error messages seems to be:

urbackupclientbackend -v debug

Which is annoying since I always forget that, and always loose a lot of time until I remember it.
(And even then, a lot of times the failure messages are just cryptic).
