Have you tried the snap version yet? It will give you the very latest release in which I believe we’ve made it easier to see the progress window if you open the app while it is backing up.

snap install deja-dup --classic 

You can optionally uninstall the built-in version:
sudo apt uninstall deja-dup

Dear Deja Dup

I have been using Deja Dup successfully for a number of years and I 
would class myself as a basic Ubuntu Linux user.

I am using automatic (weekly) backups to a USB hard drive that I only 
turn on and connect to when I am prompted to do so.

I use Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS and it does appear to back up successfully.

I would like more notice about the progress of a backup taking place

When a backup is taking place I can see the Deja Dup application with 
the 'Back Up Now' option greyed out.

There is no indication of how far through the back up I am.

However I think I remember in the past when a backup was taking place 
there was a window showing the progress of the backup and that feature 
appears to have been removed.

Is there an easy way to see how a backup is progressing and if not would 
you consider adding this option back in again.

I hope this is clear but if you have any question then please contact me.
