What's the Linux backup/Duplicity command line "backend" path "scheme" to access Synology NAS?

I'd like to use Linux Duplicity program from the command line to benefit from additional command options that offers, but am unable to find/figure out the proper format for the "backend" Target path.
I've successfully used the GUI to backup to the Synology NAS for years. using just smb:// for "Network Location" and Minty for "folder."

I have SMB enabled for NAS. Not NFS.

This, for example, fails. Minty is the directory holding the backups the Backup GUI generates.

duplicity collection-status --dry-run sftp://[email protected]:22/xray_backups/Mint193
with error:
 BackendException: Could not initialize backend: No module named paramiko

FTP & SFTP are enabled on NAS. DSM 6.2.3.

I can't figure out how to add paramiko support to sftp/DSM.

Duplicity's man page has lots of examples, but no guidance on which is appropriate for NAS connection.

Anybody know the correct incantation? Protocol? need for username/password, etc.

Thanks much!
I'm no expert here... but one of the Duplicacy experts wrote this up...
Thanks much, but that seems to be a different program with a whole new learning curve.
Duplicity v Duplicacy.
Next it'll be Deuteronomy.
