Many errors on Backup (BQ Aquaris E4.5)
I'm trying to backup my device (BQ Aquaris E4.5) before install ubports with magic-device-tool but i have many errors.
rsync: symlink ...... failed: Operation not permitted (1)
and in the end
676,388,345 53% 1.21MB/s 0:08:54 (xfr#14152, to-chk=0/29721)rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1183) [sender=3.1.1] Backup NOT OK!
Is it safe to continue install ubports ?
@vagrale13 did you run the magic-device-tool with sudo?
@vagrale13 I used this https://wiki.ubports.com/wiki/How-to-flash-existing-ubuntu-touch-devices-with-Ubports-images to backup and install the Image.
I tried the tool, and I think despite those errors it manages to back up all that is possible to back up. For instance wifi passwords and some configurations will not be backed up. These errors come from some symbolic links that rsync is not able to copy.
On the other hand this backup is not related with the actual flashing of the device, it is just a copy of your home folder in the old device and then you can restore it into your flash device. Once you reinstall all your old applications (this is not backed up either) you should recover almost everything from your old device.
