Possible reasons:

-          Your temp storage is out of space (df h)

-          Your disk drives have errors (smartctl --all /dev/sdX)

Does this happen only with a specific VM or with all VMs?

Could you try making a backup from the command line using vzdump? Post the output here.

I face below error if take backup of VM:
vzdump  101 --dumpdir .  
INFO: starting new backup job: vzdump 101 --dumpdir .
INFO: Starting Backup of VM 101 (qemu)
INFO: status = stopped

The backup of VM fails. Tried googling this issue, but no luck.

Thanks and Regards,
Vishal :)
