the most recent official online man page is located on 
under Synopsis you find
duplicity [restore] [options] [--file-to-restore <relpath>] [--time time] 
source_url target_directory

you do _not_ select a backup but rather a point in time to restore . accepted 
time formats are explained here.

you may consult your output.txt which contains a human readable list of your 
backup chains or utilize
duplicity collection-status [options] [--file-changed <relpath>] target_url
to show them again.

your current backup chain (latest) contains the corruption, so choose the chain 
before and give a point in time after the full but before the next incremental.

good luck ..ede/duply.net

ps. you still owe us answers to our questions from before.
