Mount rclone failing on debian 11

when using mount s3:my-bucket/img /mnt/img -t rclone or /etc/fstab on debian 11

# mount s3:my-bucket/img /mnt/img -t rclone -o config=/root/rclone.conf

I struggled a wile !!

So I thought I could share the solution :slightly_smiling_face:

If one gets this kind of error on a debian 11 fresh install... the distro package at this date is

$ rclone version
rclone v1.53.3-DEV
- os/arch: linux/amd64
- go version: go1.15.9


apt remove --purge rclone

and get the .deb from Rclone downloads

I find it sad that such a good tool as rclone has a broken version in there... Rclone deserves better treat :slight_smile:

hav a nice day
