deja-dup error message

I have been struggling for the last two or three weeks to restore from a deja-dup backup. In updating from Linux Mint 18 to 19 I managed to wipe my home partition. Trying to restore from backup with deja-dup I got an unhelpful 'an error has occurred'. I have a file; /media/russ/2C3B-0AEC/duplicityfull.20180722T125101Z.manifest followed by a large number of duplicity-fullxxxxxxx.difftar.gz folders.
Can anyone help?
