Yes, I know, there is an incompatibility between GostCrypt 1.3 and 1.0 
containers. I wanted to add some warning message before installing the 
RPM (like when you have to accept a license) but I didn't find a way to 
do it… That's my fault, I lost patience, I shouldn't have released it, 
sorry - or I should have announced it (I did it only on a 
French-speaking forum).

If you have a Btrfs root filesystem, you can try to get back to a 
previous snapshot with snapper in order to get back GostCrypt 1.0.

I will build GostCrypt 1.0 in my home repository anyway, I'll let you 
know when it is available. Then you'll be able to install it, open your 
existing container with it, update again to GostCrypt 1.3, create a new 
container and copy your data to it.
