Okay, the upstream issue is fixed now in borgmatic 1.3.13, just released. It'll need to be bumped here.

"Hopefully this is just a version range issue, and not an actual compatibility problem."

I tried backing up and restoring a test system earlier today, after rebuilding borgmatic with

prepare() {
  for f in {test_requirements.txt,}; do
    sed -i 's|\(ruamel\.yaml.*\)<\(0\.16\.0\)|\1<=\2|' "$f"; done

added to the PKGBUILD. Both worked flawlessly, so I guess it's just what you're hoping it to be. :)

I'm tracking that issue here: .. Hopefully fixed soon!

python-ruamel-yaml update broke it

@jhenson Thanks for reporting. I think I just fixed it by adding a colorama dependency.

The latest version needs a dependency to python-colorama added to the pkgbuild.

the dependency patch is missing:

That's intentional. As for why it's not included, see the note at the end of the linked section:

the dependency patch is missing:

it is beeing used in the PKGBUILD.

@anponteg Please report any issues with borgmatic itself (rather than AUR packaging) upstream. See

It'd also be helpful to include your config file there with anything sensitive redacted. Thanks!

Hi! If I uncomment compression: lz4 in /etc/borgmatic/config.yaml I get this error when I run borgmatic:

 --- All found errors ---
["Key 'compression' was not defined. Path: '/location'"]
Errors found but will not raise exception...
/etc/borgmatic/config.yaml: Error running configuration file
An error occurred while parsing a configuration file at /etc/borgmatic/config.yaml:
Key 'compression' was not defined. Path: '/location'

Need some help?
