I am affected by this bug with a current Xubuntu 16.04 LTS.
My ~/.cache is a symlink to a different SSD/partition if this matters.
Since ~/.cache/deja-dup filled up my root parition (before symlinking
it), I had to manually delete ~/.cache/deja-dup and the files in the
backup destination. Maybe this had some effect as well.

Hi. I've tried to do my monthly or so backup recently, but Deja Dup
crashed after trying to backup a very large file (VM disk with Windows
7, 50GB or so). I tried to do another one, this time excluding all my
large VM's. However, now when trying to do a backup I'm getting the
following error a few seconds after inputting my encryption password:
Could not restore ‘/home/tom/.cache/deja-dup/metadata’: File not found
I've tried reinstalling both deja-dup and duplicity, purging
duplicity, deleting deja-dup and duplicity from /home/tom/.cache,
deleting the backup files on the external drive, deleting it's config
as described here http://askubuntu.com/questions/53980/how-to-delete-
all-the-settings-for-deja-dup. I know (well, I have some evidence
supporting this) that the drive itself isn't faulty as I managed to
backup my old laptop to the drive using duplicity and it worked fine
(Fedora 19, deja dup 26.0 I think). I will upload the appropriate logs
