The reason for this is that you don't have the .Private directory for your user symlinked from /home/.ecryptfs/user/.Private to your home directory or .Private does not exist (common mistake when migrating ecryptfs data to another system).

Solution:

rsync -Phaz /home/.ecryptfs/yourusername/.Private ~
