Backup error: cp: preserving times for '/job_001/./.AppleDB'

During my backups from Ultra 6 Plus (using Frontview backup) to a WD Live Book Duo 6TB I 'always' get the following error(s):

Error encountered copying data from source path /c/.timemachine ==> //192.168.1.55/TimeMachine_NAS due to permission denial on one or more files.
cp: preserving times for '/job_001/./.AppleDB': Permission denied


Not only when copying the Time Machine backup, but others also:

Error encountered copying data from source path /backup/ ==> //192.168.1.55/backup_NAS due to permission denial on one or more files.
cp: preserving times for '/job_008/./.AppleDB/cnid2.db': Permission denied
cp: preserving times for '/job_008/./.AppleDB': Permission denied


Any known solutions to these problems?

Thanks,
Regards

Try to format the USB HDD to EXT3 using NAS frontview and try to use archive bit instead of windows timestamp.

Thanks arjoseph, but I'm not using the WD Live Book Duo as a USB disk. It's on my local network.
It functions as a second backup of my ReadyNas Ultra backup

I do still experience the same problems:
Error encountered copying data from source path /backup/ ==> //192.168.1.55/backup_NAS due to permission denial on one or more files.
cp: preserving times for '/job_008/./.AppleDB': Permission denied

This means that my backups are all completed, but with errors - and I have to manually check to see what the error is about..

Looks like there is something wrong to access Apple.DB hidden folder in /c/.timemachine,this folder is dedicate to creating files index of AFP shares,
you can try something below in SSH access
--delete Apple.DB folder
cd /c/.timemachine;rm -rf Apple.DB

--reboot device
--you will see a new Apple.DB folder created by Netatalk protocol
You can also try Rsync backup to instead of CIFS backup
