How do you have Deja Dup installed? Distro package, flatpak, or snap? What distro?

Hello List
I hope this is the best place to post - please point me somewhere else
I ran into these bugs a year or so ago:

I did 'pip install pyrax' after enabling legacy Rackspace Cloudfiles
backen and all seemed to work.

Just  a week or so ago, Deja Dup started throwing the same original error:
BackendException: Pyrax backend requires the pyrax library available
from Rackspace.
Exception: cannot import name _normalize_host

But, following the fixes in the above bugs, doesn't seem to be a fix
anymore.  Does anyone know what's changed and if it can be fixed?  Has
legacy become dead?  Is there alternative and if not... Does anyone
know how I can get my back-ups back from Rackspace Cloudfiles?
