Description John Jacq 2014-04-28 07:07:15 UTC
After an upgrade of Kubuntu yesterday, all my backups fail.

Here is a typical command with rsync's error messages:

It is followed with me opening a secure shell to sirius to demonstrate that it's not a Hostkey or private/public key issue, all the private keys have been loaded in the agent so passwords/passphrases are not necessary

Then I used scp to copy a file across

Finally I add the version of rsync that is installed.


jjjacq@aldebaran:~$ rsync -e ssh -r -avz /home/jjjacq/Documents/web/ sirius:web/
protocol version mismatch - is your shell clean?
(see the rsync man page for an explanation)
rsync error: protocol incompatibility (code 2) at compat.c(62)
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(226) [sender=3.1.0]
jjjacq@aldebaran:~$ ssh sirius

All that glitters is not gold; all that wander are not lost.

sirius ~$ 
sirius ~$ logout
Connection to sirius closed.
jjjacq@aldebaran:~$ scp john.asc sirius:tmp/
john.asc                                               100% 1337     1.3KB/s   00:00    
jjjacq@aldebaran:~$ rsync --version
rsync  version 3.1.0  protocol version 31
