Proxmox backups are stuck

I just found out in my backups there's one that seems stuck doing something, not sure what it is.

There are no tasks running.

Updated the system with APT.

Rebooted the PBS.

The backup is still stuck with the loading animation (check screenshot).

Is there something I can check and fix?

Thank you.

that just means the backup never finished, doing another backup or pruning should take care of it.
yes. if the backup is actually still running, deleting it will not be possible.
