[Question #659464]: Backup done in 16.04 LTS; restore possible in 17.10 LTS?


New question #659464 on Duplicity:

All backups were done in 16.04. These are the versions:

$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Release: 16.04
Codename: xenial

$ which python; python --version; which duplicity; duplicity --version; which deja-dup; deja-dup --version; which rsync ; rsync --version

Python 2.7.12
duplicity 0.7.06
deja-dup 34.2
rsync version 3.1.1 protocol version 31

Will I be able to restore these files from a different computer which will have installed the next LTS 17.10? Current system is very old and will have to replace it. Trying to foresee and avoid problems when restoring old backups from newer python3/duplicity/deja-dup versions.

Thank you.
