make sure you don't have duplicate duplicity instances:

         $ find /usr -name duplicity -type f
         $ find /usr -name duplicity -type d

I do get multiple versions, but I've always included the full path in my 
script, e.g.:

crontab: /home/newton/duplicity-
backup.sh: /home/newton/duplicity-

that is irrelevant. installing python apps places parts of them in system 
python library folders by default. having multiple versions may lead to one 
version using modules from an incompatible version, hence to errors.

         If you have more than one response from above, uninstall all, and 
reinstall the one you want.

I'm kind of afraid to uninstall anything until I can get a replacement working. 
Right now still works from the command line.

well, if that one works. remove all of the other ones and fix the cron issue
