Package: exiv2
Version: 0.20-2
Severity: normal


When using exiv2 to add, display, or edit metadata for a file that resides on 
mount, the program exits with the error message "Failed to open the file".

This seems to be a known situation which can be resolved by doing an
before configure during compilation.

Indeed that fixed the problem on my system. A bit of technical explination can 
found at [1] and additional discussion at [2] and [3].
