We currently have this problem only (and it only started recently, probably after an update of rclone or other packages via apt) on Ubuntu Server 22.04.3 LTS. Doing the same with rclone on Windows, using the same Azure BLOB Storage, same SAS Token, same Internet connection / network etc. works fine.
The problem is, that rclone connects only once every few minutes properly to an Azure BLOB storage, then we see Authorization Failures until we wait a few minutes more for another attempt. At the same time from a Windows VM using rclone (1.64.2 or an older version does not matter) access works just fine.
Although the Logs posted here are from rclone 1.53.3, we also tried it with the latest 1.64.2 with the same results.
So if we run the ls command posted below once, it shows the contents of the BLOB storage. Run it a 2nd time and you see the error message posted below. Wait a few minutes and try it again = it works.
We were using this setup for a few years now with cron jobs for automatic backups, but realized today that it just stopped working recently. What gets changed frequently on the server is that it is kept to the latest versions with apt update | apt upgrade.
