Subject: backintime 1.1.24 - unhandled exception
Date: Thu, 24 Jun 2021 21:31:10 -0300
Package: backintime
Version: 1.1.24-0.1
Severity: normal

I have recently received a notification in my system mail related to
an unhandled exception in a backintime Python script.

Here is the transcript:

-----

Unhandled exception in thread started by <function 
__log_keyring_warning at 0x7fdf90288488>
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/backintime/common/tools.py", line 1458, in 
__log_keyring_warning
TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not callable

-----

This is the first time I have seen (or noticed) such a message.
It has not happened again since.

The notification was sent by the cron daemon on date Mon, 21 Jun 2021
11:00:02 -0300.

The last backintime log entry was for a snapshot taken at Mon Jun 21
07:15:01 2021 local time and does not show any errors.

The crontab script is a system entry generated by the GUI and the 
python script is part of the application's installation.

[code]
#Back In Time system entry, this will be edited by the gui:
60 */15 * * * * /usr/bin/nice -n 19 /usr/bin/ionice -c2 -n7 
/usr/bin/backintime backup-job >/dev/null
[/code]

Python installed version is 2.7.16 (default, Oct 10 2019, 22:02:15).

I have reported this issue to 
https://github.com/bit-team/backintime/issues:

[url]https://github.com/bit-team/backintime/issues/1169[/url]

Later on I found that it had *also* been reported back in 10/2017:

[url]https://github.com/bit-team/backintime/issues/820[/url]

The OP's report is virtually identical to the one I filed and 
included messages from --debug:

[code]
Unhandled exception in thread started by <function 
__log_keyring_warning at 0x7fd698dbf400>
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/backintime/common/tools.py", line 1463, in 
__log_keyring_warning
File "", line 2237, in _find_and_load
File "", line 2222, in _find_and_load_unlocked
File "", line 2150, in _find_spec
TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not callable
[/code]

The OP's report did not have any subsequent follow-up from the 
maintainers of the backintime package.

Thanks in advance,

Carlos Izzo Videla

Thanks for this.

As you have discovered this is an upstream issue that needs to be fixed by the
upstream devs. I hope you get a response to your issue.

Thanks.

Mark
