I am stuck on v. 1.53.3 how to connect to google drive?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am currently stuck on Debian Bullseye for amd64. Which means my Rclone version can't go above 1.53.3. I am trying to mount a new google drive, but I am getting the OOB error as I am doing this on a headless device. Is there anyway to get this new google drive mounted? Can I mount it on my Mac and then transfer the config to this headless Debian device? Any other out of the box thinking on this?

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

Installed: 1.53.3-1+b6
Candidate: 1.53.3-1+b6
Version table:
*** 1.53.3-1+b6 500

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone config

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

No config was created for the new connection as I can't get past the auto config part (which I chose 'n' on).

It is not true. Your Linux distro maintainers are doing bad job in keeping software up to date but does not mean that you have to do the same.

Uninstall apt installed version:

sudo apt remove rclone

Install the latest one directly from rclone site:

sudo -v ; curl https://rclone.org/install.sh | sudo bash

Then try your Google setup again.

Thank you! I will try that out. I assume uninstalling it will just temporarily lose connectivity (probably have to unmount first I guess). Then once installed it will work again with the config as-is?

Yes - unmount first. Then remove apt old version and install the latest one. All configuration files will remain and work after.
