My ipfire’s partition layout still uses the old version, so I want to reinstall to get the new layout. Have made a backup via GUI and choose “iso”. Running Core 161.
Installation starts and completes, then I get asked if I want to restore the backup that was found. Choose yes and get “An error occured when the backup file was restored”. No further explanation, no way to check any log files.
I could access the system and tried to restore the ipf file via GUI. Seemed to upload something but then nothing happened. No error message, no success message. Just the same screen as before. Reboot didn’t change anything. Had to use Clonezilla to restore the disk image I made before.
I could open the corresponding ipf file as an archive and test it. Found no problems.
I was able to reproduce the problem on a VirtualBox machine.
Why is this happening?
How can I debug this?
