it looks like you are not running a native version of Evolution, but a
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 Evolution
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 necessarily
 is also today, or a week later.

Evolution 3.28.1-2 running under Ubuntu 18.04 wants you to import a backup file
for the first run on a new installation. Not a problem for those of us who have
been running evolution for years.

Not sure how one would do if I were installing evolution and had never used it before.
