Scheduled or manual FTP backup fails with error. From stderr file in /usr/local/psa/PMM/sessions/some_session:

Unable to parse options: Bad FTP file format at /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/plesk_agent_manager line 275, <VERSION> line 1.
at /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/plesk_agent_manager line 275


FTP backup is chosen in backup settings, but FTP backup repository is not configured.


Make sure that FTP backup repository is configured (IP, user and password are specified) in Plesk Control panel > subscriptions > > websites and domains tab > Backup Manager > Personal FTP Repository
