I just tried to run rdiff-backup on my Ubuntu 20.04 setup on a Dell XPS 13". The following command has run successfully any number of times in the three months since I got my new box (Dell factory Ubuntu image installed.) Now I get this strange string of messages. What do they mean?

eric@eric-XPS-9315:~$ sudo rdiff-backup  --exclude "/home/eric/VirtualBox VMs" --include /home/ --include /var/www --include /usr/share/fonts --exclude '**' / /media/eric/021cc172-036d-4b8c-be87-c6298c9f7c4c/XPS-2022-08
