Backup return code -8020

Every night we backup all our databases using the dbmcli command backup_start.

This has been working fine for some months, but one of the databases has started returning a code -8020.

I have looked in the dbmcli documentation, and while some return codes are documented, this one isn't.

The command does create a backup file.

The MaxDB backup logs do not record a full data backup.

Can anyone tell me what this code means, or point me to documentation for it?
