Backups DigitalOcean Storage

im trying to backup data to a spaces bucket,
since spaces should be s3 compliant i assume this should work, see: https://restic.readthedocs.io/en/stable/manual.html#amazon-s3

$ restic -r s3:nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com/mysupernicebucket init
create backend at s3:nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com/mysupernicebucket failed: client.BucketExists: Get http://169.254.169.254/latest/meta-data/iam/security-credentials: dial tcp 169.254.169.254:80: i/o timeout

i hate to say so but "yesterday it was working okay".

weird thing is i see the same ip as the aws user data endpoint appearing in the error message.
whats going on here? what am i missing?

  • quick update:

    • it is working with the same access key id and secrets from a computer located in the SF bay
    • it is NOT working with the same access key id and secrets from a computer located in berlin/germany
