Forcing Pixel 2 XL Backup

There seems to be an issue with this fix at this time.

I have had to do this on a number of Pixel phones in the past, Pixel 2 and Pixel 4XL. Today I received a warranty replacement for a Pixel 4XL (battery swelling).

bmgr backupnow --all (fails with transport error)
bmgr backupnow appdata (fails with package missing)

Setting the transport to doesn't work.

The only way I can back up data is to remove all device screen locks etc which is not helpful when using google pay.
How did you fixed when
bmgr backupnow appdata (package not found)
