Deleting Old Backups after package update

OS type and version Ubuntu Linux 18.04.6
Webmin version 2.021
Virtualmin version 7.7

Hi, after update Webmin and Virtualmin to the latest version the delete older backup stop working.
the backup destination was setup like follow:

and no backups is found to delete with message like this:

Deleting backups from /var/VM-WORDPRESS/virtual-server-backups on Webmin server matching .-.-.* older than 4 days …

… found 6 backups, but none were old enough
but there are folder older to delete.

I also tried to change the strftime pattern as suggested in the tooltip from %Y-%m-%d to %d-%m-%Y with no luck. always no old backup found.

I don’t understand what happen and how to fix this
Could somone help me please?


Are there really 6 backups and are they really older than 4 days? and I assume no errors then are those backups being saved with a different format. Are there any command set to run before/after backup?
I don’t do anything too complex but this is typical

I’m very much of the “if it works, don’t try to break it” school but am a bit of a rule breaker sometimes
