   Hello,
   
   I couldn't find anything on the internet about this error, so I hope to
   find a solution here.
   
   I created a backup with obnam quite a while ago, under Gentoo (the file
   modification time is back in December 2015). When I try to run obnam
   fsck or obnam mount now (I tried both versions 1.19.1 and 1.22), I get
   the following error:
   
   ERROR: Node 0x2 cannot be found in the node store clientlist: 2: No such
   file or directory: /path/to/obnam/clientlist/nodes/0/0/0/2
   
   What does this error mean? Is there any way I can make the backup
   accessible again?
   
   With best regards,
   
   Andreas

   I suspect it means your backup repository is partially corrupted.
   Sorry. That's bad news.
   
   https://obnam.org/faq/missing-node/ may or may not be useful to you.
   
   Obnam does not have a way to fix that or to recover from that. I
   recommend you can switch to a new backup program before you need to
   restore data. (In any case, you should do that by the end of the year,
   as Obnam is retiring.)

   This means, some files are missing from the repository. Maybe disk
   corruption, or partial download, you have to figure it out.
   If nothing helps, try
   obnam fsck --fsck-fix
   and see if obnam does rescue parts of the repository.
