I did this with s3cmd [1], which is available on Debian/Ubuntu via
s3cmd sync <local-dir> <s3://bucket/prefix>

Depending on the amount of data, this can take quite a while (8 days in
my case).

I also moved the local duplicity cache from ~/.cache/duplicity/<url
md5sum> to a different directory, and started using the --archive and
--name command line options - instead of having duplicity regenerate the
cache from the remote files.

Hope this helps,
