Can not access backup page and related error when restoring using GCP Object Storage

Hello I have setup backup to GCP Storage following the guide but a few day later when trying to access /admin/backups this error shows up. Additionally no backups was generated & uploaded to GCP until I manually trigger a backup from the UI. Then, when I attempt to restore the said backup on a new instance this error shows up:

The S3 integration seems to work since user images are upload and the manual triggered backup also…

Isn’t this s3 incompatibility @Falco

Yes, GCP has the worse compatibility of all providers. We can’t read files, and to get assets in there we even have a special ENV variable so we are read-only.

@wollacsek nothing we can do since we implement the S3 calls and only GCP fails here. I will add a warning to Using Object Storage for Uploads (S3 & Clones)
