PrivateGPT: ImportError: docx2txt is required to read Microsoft Word files

When trying to interact with Microsoft Word files, PrivateGPT throws out an error and does not want to parse it:
ImportError: docx2txt is required to read Microsoft Word files: pip install docx2txt

When actually installing docx2txt with pip, the error is still there. For some strange reason, PrivateGPT is still recommending pip, while it has moved away from pip for quite a while now. To resolve the issue, the answer is simple: Do Not Use Pip to install docx2txt (or whisper or any of the other converters you may need to upload your files.

Veeam warning: “Unable to initialize indexing: mlocate was not found” on Ubuntu Server 22.04

After playing with Veeam 11 for a bit, I decided to get my Linux Docker physical host on the backup schedule. The hardware is getting older (Some would call it vintage or just plain ancient as it’s a 2nd gen i7, but it gets the job done) and it won’t last forever. The onboarding of this physical machine was deceptively simple. A few mouse-clicks here, an IP address there and some SSH credentials. This was just too easy, so I decided to manually run the job and keep an eye on it. I didn’t have to wait long.
After a few minutes, the job completed already. With a warning. I knew it had been too good to be true.
