it looks like you are not running a native version of Evolution, but
Flatpak version. Search this list for the same error message for more
information on the error itself. In your case, make sure you run the
native version, that's the "only" way to get to the backup file; I
suppose it was your intention anyway.

By the way, Linux Mint 19 doesn't tell me anything about the
version and I'm pretty sure there are more people with the same
"handicap" here. Not talking that distributions provide updates, thus
the version which had been in distribution X a week ago not
 is also today, or a week later.

I also upgraded to Mint 19 (which runs Evolution 3.28.1-2) to eliminate
the need for running the Flatpak version; it ran well, but I like how
the "native" package integrates with the desktop.
