Check your s3cmd config file. I had the same issue but the config was wrong. The host_bucket var remained untouched. Therefore there was an issue. After fixing that, it works.

ORIGINAL host_base = ams3.digitaloceanspaces.com host_bucket = %(bucket)s.nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com

CORRECTED host_base = ams3.digitaloceanspaces.com host_bucket = %(bucket)s.ams3.digitaloceanspaces.com

Did you create the bucket/directory you are using when running the backup script in Spaces before attempting a backup?
