Borgmatic - error "is not a valid repository. Check repo config" when creating the repository

Hi there,

Following the great suggestions on this thread, I decided to give Borgmatic a try.

But I can’t create a repository, despite my config file being validated by Borgmatic, all the paths being correct, etc.

When I run: sudo borgmatic init --encryption repokey, it returns the below error:

/path/I/chose is not a valid repository. Check repo config.

After this, it asks for password. I am really don’t understanding this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well, it seems that is Ok, by what I understood through some readings (unfortunately I lost the thread where I found this information).

It seems the software is only informing that the folder is empty, or something like that.
