I’ve been using restic with backblaze for about a year now and for the most part it worked fine. Yesterday all of a sudden it stopped connecting to backblaze. It just hangs. No error produced.
root@backup1:~/bin/backup# ./restic -r b2::/backup/ns1 --verbose=3 snapshots
signal interrupt received, cleaning up
It just stays like this forever until I do Ctrl-C. All credentials variables are set properly - again it worked for almost a year and suddenly stopped yesterday.
Sniffing traffic with tcpdump I see some continuous exchange with api.backblazeb2.com, but it doesn’t go anywhere.
I checked my backblaze account works fine - I downloaded their b2 command-line utility and am able to access my bucket with the same credentials restic is using.
I’m not sure how to troubleshoot it any further.
Is anybody aware of any changes with backblaze? Do you have any hints?
