output from points 1--3, in file "details.1.txt".
output from point #4, in file "deja-dup.log".
this bug tracker appears to be limited to one attachment per comment, so
i zipped the files together and attached the archive.
thank you for instructions on how to create the deja-dup debug log file
from point #4. reading that log, it appears the encryption is choking on
a GPG config file option that's specific to gnupg version 2. could it be
that deja-dup is defaulting to using only gnupg version 1?

Deja-dup fails to create encrypted backup
Status in deja-dup package in Ubuntu:
Attempting to create a full backup to a SMB NAS, succeeds if backup is
set to unencrypted. Fails if password is specified.
Symptom: deja-dup loops endlessly through "scanning" -> "encryption
password needed" -> "require password?" and round and round.
Possibly related to recent gnupg options changes? Creating a GPG key
pair for enigmail to use was the last major change i made to my set-up
since the last time these back-ups succeeded. If that's the cause,
i'll be darned if i can work out what to revert where.
