The source code for rdiff-backup seems to have some useful information
regarding the AssertionError found in

""""Bad rdiff-backup-data dir on destination side

The rdiff-backup data directory
exists, but we cannot find a valid current_mirror marker.  You can
avoid this message by removing the rdiff-backup-data directory;
however any data in it will be lost.

Probably this error was caused because the first rdiff-backup session
into a new directory failed.  If this is the case it is safe to delete
the rdiff-backup-data directory because there is no important
information in it."
