Backup failed message doesn't mention specific error

I got an admin message saying that the backup had failed, but it only had a stack trace:


The backup has failed.

Here’s the log:

/var/www/discourse/lib/backup_restore/s3_backup_store.rb:84:in `rescue in unsorted_files'
/var/www/discourse/lib/backup_restore/s3_backup_store.rb:72:in `unsorted_files'

/var/www/discourse/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.7.0/gems/mini_scheduler-0.13.0/lib/mini_scheduler/manager.rb:37:in `block (2 levels) in initialize'

Only when I went to the backups tab and clicked on the link to /admin/backups.json did I see the problem:

{"errors":["The AWS Access Key Id you provided does not exist in our records."]}

It would be good if this was included in the message as well.

(Also, I didn’t get any notifications for this message - it’s been sending one a day for ages! Any ideas why? I can’t see where I could’ve muted the admin group.)


Any ideas if this can be improved @gerhard ?
