It's quite long so I won't paste it, but you can see it here:


For the sake of searchability (history), it's better to paste the output in your mail, so that it gets saved to list archives properly.

When looking at lines 19 and 20:
#  File 
 line 123, in get_inc
#    assert not incrp.lstat(), incrp

It seems like there is an expected file (or directory) missing in your filesystem. Not entirely sure whether this is remote or local, I'm not that good with Python.

Things you might want to try:
- do filesystem checks on both source and destination drives
- run rdiff-backup --check-destination-dir <dir> on the destination since
  it probably needs to be regressed
- run rdiff-backup --verify <dir>
  and rdiff-backup --verify-at-time 1B <dir>
  on the destination (locally on that machine!) to see it something has

Or, maybe you just ran out of disk space?
