Rclonde dedupe: returns Fatal error: unknown flag: --by-hash

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I intend to deduplicate a local folder using the rclone dedupe - command. To make sure that only actual duplicates a removed, I use the --by-hash. Unfortunately, the command returns an error:
Fatal error: unknown flag: --by-hash

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

rclone v1.53.3-DEV

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.15.9

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

Local filesystem, debian 11.

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

rclone dedupe --by-hash --dry-run --dedupe-mode skip /mnt/ncdata

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

No config used since I work on the local filesystem.

A log from the command with the -vv flag

hello and welcome to the forum,

please update to latest stable, v1.58.0 and test again

Thank you, that solved it. Since I just installed rclone on a freshly installed VM, I didn't take a closer look at the version....
