where did you run the "rpm -qa" command?
In the recreated system i.e. after 'rear recover' finished
and after you rebooted or after 'rear recover' finished but
before the reboot i.e. still in the ReaR recovery system?

Oh, Sorry. Our system's root fs is btrfs. And it have subvolume.
I omit the var in BACKUP_PROG_INCLUDE.
After add it, I success to recover.

Thank you and sorry.

many thanks for your feedback what the actual
reason was on your particular system and
for your confirmation that ReaR per se works.
It helps (at least me) a lot to have an explicit feedback
when there is no (possibly obscure) issue in ReaR.
