Error talking HTTP to rclone: unexpected EOF

I have a problem trying to initialize any repository using restic with rclone. Running the following command:

restic -r rclone:onedrive:backup init

results in this error message:

Fatal: create repository at rclone:onedrive:backup failed: error talking HTTP to rclone: Get "http://localhost/file-5577006791947779410": unexpected EOF

I am running

restic 0.13.0 compiled with go1.18 on windows/amd64
rclone v1.58.0
- os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 21H2 (64 bit)

I tested two remotes by copying a random file to them using rclone copy and it worked without any issues, which suggests me there is some problem with restic communication with rclone. What could be the issue here?

EDIT: I didn’t see that this issue was reported on Github.

For now you could use a beta build from restic beta releases (/) .
