My Plesk (17.5.3) server has stopped creating scheduled backups. The log coming from the web GUI just says:

Error: server "server"
Unable to create dump

Not very helpfull. So I sshed into the server and this is the error that I can see:

I tried googling the Can't locate object method \"lastDumpsFile\" via package line or even just lastDumpsFile keyword but with 0 results.

Just in case, nothing has changed on the server since way before the backups stopped working and there is plenty of space to store the backups. Trying to create backup manually also fails with the same error, independently if is complete or incremental.
