problem in backup

Hi I am using Ubuntu back up program to the back up automatic.

Problem is that recently the app start to fail.

I get the following message:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1359, in <module>
  File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1342, in with_tempdir
  File "/usr/bin/duplicity", line 1202, in main
    action = commandline.ProcessCommandLine(sys.argv[1:])
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 942, in ProcessCommandLine
    globals.backend = backend.get_backend(args[0])
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 156, in get_backend
    return _backends[pu.scheme](pu)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/backends/", line 74, in __init__
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 319, in iterate
    return fn(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/backends/", line 161, in create_volume
    answer = auth.request(self.volume_uri, http_method="PUT")
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ubuntuone-couch/ubuntuone/couch/", line 147, in request
    url, method=http_method, headers=headers, body=request_body)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/httplib2/", line 1436, in request
    (response, content) = self._request(conn, authority, uri, request_uri, method, body, headers, redirections, cachekey)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/httplib2/", line 1188, in _request
    (response, content) = self._conn_request(conn, request_uri, method, body, headers)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/httplib2/", line 1129, in _conn_request
    raise ServerNotFoundError("Unable to find the server at %s" %
ServerNotFoundError: Unable to find the server at

The only thing I was able to conclude is that the program is written in python.

I still have no idea what can be the cause of the crash.

I hope someone with better knowledge than me can guide me to find the problem.

So please can you tell me what is wrong?

I should have read the last line before posting this.

Apparently my computer could not access the ubuntu one server.

But that shouldn't ma the program crash, so it's a bug (not major) which can be reported to the ubuntu team.
